“Mr. Vice President, Mr. Speaker, Members of the Senate, and of the House of Representatives: Yesterday, December 7th, 1941 -- a date which will live in infamy -- the United States of America was suddenly and deliberately attacked by naval and air forces of the Empire of Japan.”
That was the beginning of a speech by President Roosevelt on December 8th, 1941. When I wrote this nearly 7 years ago it was November 9th, 2011. I said that on 11/11/11 it will be Veterans Day. It is now 2018 and nearly 77 years since that attempt by an enemy force to destroy the military power of the United States of America.
Today as I update this blog, it is June 6th, 2018, the 74th anniversary of D-Day on Normany and the 77th anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor is next December.
Read this book. Nowhere else will you get this story as it is written of the war that brought America together with its allies, and ultimately defeated the evil that was the Empire of Japan.
The island campaigns and the battles that took place are presented not only in historical accuracy, but in detail and men who fought those battles provide that detail.
