Today is National Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day and the 75th anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor. In COUNTDOWN TO PEARL HARBOR, Pulitzer Prize winner Steve Twomey examines the twelve days leading up to the attack on the morning of December 7, 1941 and unravels the crucial characters and moments, producing an edge-of-your seat drama with fascinating details about America at this moment in its history. By the end, the reader understands how assumption is the root of disaster, and how sometimes a gamble pays off. #ShelfLife #WWII #pearlharbor #pearlharborday
