Day of deceit : the truth about FDR and Pearl Harbor
Stinnett, Robert B.2001
Books
Review: "This great question of Pearl Harbor - what did we know and when did we know It? - has been argued for years. At first, a panel created by FDR concluded that we had no advance warning and should blame only the local commanders for lack of preparedness. More recently, historians such as John Toland and Edward Beach have concluded that some intelligence was intercepted. Finally, just months ago, the Senate voted to exonerate Hawaii commanders Admiral Kimmel and Lieutenant General Short, after the Pentagon officially declared that blame should be "broadly shared." But no investigator has ever been able to prove that foreknowledge of the attack existed at the highest levels."--BOOK JACKET."Until now, After decades of Freedom of Information Act requests, Robert B. Stinnett has gathered the long-hidden evidence that shatters every shibboleth of Pearl Harbor. It shows that not only was the attack expected. It was deliberately provoked through an eight-step program devised by the Navy."--BOOK JACKET.
