Greetings,

Has anyone here at the forum read Stanley Weintraub's book "Long Day's Journey into War:Pearl Harbor and a World at War, December 7, 1941?"

Considering purchasing it. Feedback will be helpful in my determination.

Thanks
Hank

My copy was hijacked, but I remember it favorably.  Purchased my copy the year it was released if I remember correctly.  I would buy it again.

Larry J, thanks for the info. Viewed some reviews at Amazon.com. All were favorable. Looks like another book purchase in the making. At the moment I'm very much enjoying Gordon W. Prange's "At Dawn We Slept"
Just reached the part when the Japanese Navy sets sail for Pearl Harbor on November 26, 1941. My next read will probably be Prange's "Pearl Harbor:Verdict of History"
I'm sure Larry that you have read both. Care to comment?

Thanks

ADWS was pretty much the bench-mark for Pearl Harbor material when published.  More info has come to light since it was published, but there are only a few details Prange got wrong.

PH:VOH is more challenging a read as it was, IIRC, assembled after Prange's death from his notes.  The information is there, but its a harder read.

Superb book...goes beyond Pearl Harbor to give everything that happened in the 36 hours that December 7, 1941 crossed the earth, and everything DID happen, from the Soviet counterattack at Moscow to the British breaking the siege of Tobruk to the Americans deciding to build an atomic bomb to the Nazis postponing a major conference on how to kill six million Jews.

Oh yeah, and there was this raid on Pearl Harbor, too.  :)
