Synopsis

Synopsis

Bestselling author and historian John Toland’s expertise and skill as a narrator were awarded with the Pulitzer Prize for his sweeping Rising Sun. In Infamy, Toland extends and corrects his account of the events leading up to Japan’s attack on Pearl Harbor, addressing persistent questions: Could FDR have engineered a conspiracy to get the US into the War? Did high-level military and civilian leaders lie under oath? Were the wrong men held culpable in order to protect Washington? Accessing formerly secret government, military, and diplomatic records--including the account of the then anonymous and controversial “Seaman Z”—Toland masterfully  reevaluates what we know about this infamous act of aggression against the US.

Praise

Praise

"Mr. Toland has written a thriller. He recounts the attack dramatically and then reviews the investigation in a way that raises doubts and questions." —New York Times Book Review

"An ambitious book written with revisionist vengeance." —National Review

 
"John Toland has been fearless in his pursuit of truth.... Infamy is not only readable and suspenseful; it is probably his most controversial book to date." —John S. D. Eisenhower

"In meticulous detail, Toland shows that Navy and Army commanders were not adequately informed by Washington of the likelihood of a Pear Harbor attack." —Booklist

"Pearl Harbor and its cover-up ranks right up there with President Johnson's escalation in Vietnam and Nixon's Watergate. A fascinating account." —Richmond Times-Dispatch
