Fifty years after the attack that plunged America into World War II, At Dawn We Slept remains the greatest account of Pearl Harbor ever written.

This gripping study scrupulously reconstructs the Japanese attack, from its conception (less than a year before the actual raid) to its lightning execution; and it reveals the true reason for the American debacle: the insurmountable disbelief in the Japanese threat that kept America from heeding advance warnings and caused leaders to ignore evidence submitted by our own intelligence sources.

Based on thirty-seven years of intense research and countless interviews, and incorporating previously untranslated documents, At Dawn We Slept is history with the dramatic sweep of a martial epic.

New York Times Book Review

Prange's exhaustive interviews of people on both sides enable him to tell the story in such personal terms that the reader is bound to feel its power....It is impossible to forget such an account.
