Publisher's Summary

Pearl Harbor is in utter chaos after the unexpected third strike by Imperial Japanese Naval Air Forces, ordered into the attack by Admiral Yamamoto. A victory has been achieved, but is it total victory?

Yamamoto is horrified to discover that the Foreign Ministry office of his government has utterly failed in their promise to insure that a proper declaration of war be delivered to America prior to the opening of hostilities. As someone who has spent years in America, Yamamoto perhaps more than any other military man serving "His Imperial Majesty" knows that America's response, rather than one that might have led eventually to a negotiated settlement, will be instead a bitter push for total war.

Japan's only hope for victory now is to pursue a ruthless and total assault on the remaining American assets in the Pacific region, to hammer "the slumbering giant" into a willingness to negotiate. But Admiral Halsey is en route to Pearl Harbor for his counterstrike.... And so begins the next installment of this amazing series.

Filled with historical figures - F.D.R., Admiral Halsey, General MacArthur, and a host of well-realized and developed fictional characters - Gingrich and Forstchen have once again established themselves as master craftsmen. A compelling, meticulously-researched saga, Days of Infamy continues the dramatic Pacific War series that began with the New York Times best-selling Pearl Harbor.

Wonderful

After Pearl Harbor, an audio book I loved, I couldn't wait for the sequel. I loved it. Bring on the next one. I do feel that the fortunes of war seem to be favoring the Japanese, however. Why are only our bombs and torpedos duds?

You're already going to buy it.

Now that the attacks have happened authors explore the results of the change in reality from book 1. So there is less "fact" to learn from here, but the whole is really worth the effort, what could have been is frightening and I really hope this era is explored futher. I haven't gotten any of their civil war books, but want to.

What a great series!

Can't wait for the next book. Scary how one decision could have changed the strategy for the attack on Pearl Harbor and made it much worse. Can't wait to see how this series will end. Hopefully with us winning, or will our side make the wrong decision at a crucial time.

PROVOCATIVE PROJECTION

My historic understandings were challanged. The substitution of principals projecting the new directions presented was facinating. The character and demeaner of the principals along with the reactions of the people surounding the various senarios in keeping with reality. What a beauty. Gret narration. Loved it.

Many skips and missing areas. Makes it difficult to understand the story. The whole experience is not as good as it should have been.

Very decent sequel of Pearl Harbour

What made the experience of listening to Days of Infamy the most enjoyable?

Almost as powerful and vivid as part one in the series which only counts two books so far. A bit too many coincidence and far fetched scenarios for my taste but then again I guess the vastness of the Pacific ocean can create such situations.

What did you like best about this story?

As all westerners I am grateful for Allied forces being victorious in WW2. However in Days of infamy I really liked the look at Yamamoto's respective and his vision for the only realistic plan for Japan to have the slightest chance against the overwhelming strength of the USA.

Which scene was your favorite?

Japan doing what they should have done back in the days, neutralizing Pearl Harbour by finishing off oil reserves, dry docks and other facilities in addition to devastating the battleships. It makes the story so fun some how because it is after all not reality.

Who was the most memorable character of Days of Infamy and why?

Yamamoto

Any additional comments?

What happened next? Is Yamamoto capable of pressing on? Well....why not!<br/><br/>Thanks.

Enjoyable

Realistic scenes and well laid out with time stamps. But this feedback platform stinks, Gray type on Black background. ????.
