End of the Beginning: Days of Infamy, Book 2

Six weeks ago, Imperial Japanese military forces conquered and occupied the Hawaiian Islands. A puppet king sits on Hawaii's throne, his strings controlled by the general of the invasion force.

And families of Japanese origin find their loyalties divided.

Publisher's Summary

Six weeks ago, Imperial Japanese military forces conquered and occupied the Hawaiian Islands. A puppet king sits on Hawaii's throne, his strings controlled by the general of the invasion force. American POWs, malnourished and weak, are enslaved as hard laborers until death takes them. Civilians fare little better, struggling to survive on dwindling resources. And families of Japanese origin find their loyalties divided.

Meanwhile, across the United States, from Pensacola, Florida, to San Diego, the military is marshaling its forces. Steel factories and fuel refineries are operating around the clock. New recruits are enlisting and undergoing rigorous training exercises - all for the opportunity to strike back and drive the enemy from American soil.

What the Critics Say

“Chilling.... A plethora of characters, each with his or her own point of view, provides experiences in miniature that combine to paint a broad canvas of the titanic struggle.” (Publishers Weekly)

    "If you love "what if's", THIS IS FOR YOU!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of End of the Beginning to be better than the print version?

    This is one book that helps you to really understand how POWs were treated in WWII. Even if it is set in an alternate time line you really feel for the characters.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of End of the Beginning?

    These characters come alive with expert authorship.


    Have you listened to any of John Allen Nelson’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    The reader is consistent with being top grade.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    History Hangs On One Single Action.


    Any additional comments?

    I have been a SUPERFAN of Mr. Turtledove for many years and have had the pleasure to learn of what has happened because of what might have happened.
