Overview

Days of Infamy starts minutes after the close of the first installment of the Pacific War Series, Pearl Harbor, as both sides react to the monumental events triggered by the presence of Admiral Yamamoto. In direct command of the six carriers of the attacking fleet, Yamamoto decides to launch a fateful 'third wave attack' on the island of Oahu, and then keeps his fleet in the area to hunt down the surviving American aircraft carriers, which by luck and fate, were not anchored in the harbor on that day. Historians have often speculated about what might have transpired from legendary match ups of great generals and admirals. In this story of the aftermath of Pearl Harbor, the notorious gambler, Yamamoto, is pitted against the equally legendary American Admiral Bill Halsey in a battle of wits, nerve, and skill. Using their critically acclaimed 'active history', which examines how a change in but one decision might have profoundly altered American history, Gingrich and Forstchen have written a sequel that's as much an homage to the survivors of the real Pearl Harbor attack as it is an imaginative and thrilling take on America's entry into World War II.
