|The attack on Pearl Harbor was one of the single most important wartime events of our century. In one stroke, the Japanese offensive brought together the war in Europe with the ongoing conflict between Japan and China, turning it into the global struggle between two great coalitions we know as the Second World War. By bringing America into the war, Japan assured not only the destruction of her Asian empire, but also the end of American isolationism, the survival of Soviet communism, and the ultimate bankruptcy of the great European colonial systems. In Pearl Harbor Revisited, eleven distinguished writers consider the action as an international event, providing remarkably lucid and impressive interpretations of the attack's causes and consequences.|
From the Publisher:
Not a return to the place itself, but reconsiderations of the causes and consequences of the event that happened there. The 11 essays consider such aspects as the relationship between the far eastern and European wars, the Japanese threat and war rhetoric, Soviet perspectives, US concerns about the Philippines and the Panama Canal, and Roosevelt as Commander in Chief and details of his behavior in the 24 hours before the attack.
