But Not In Shame - The Six months after Pearl Harbor

By: John Toland (588/36041)
Publisher: Anthony Gibbs & Phillips From the John Laffin Library

Probably the most controversial six month in American history started on December 7, 1941. Even today many are dissatisfied with the conflicting answers to a number of provocative questions: Why did Japan declare war on a nation as powerful as the United States? Did Roosevelt and Marshall stab Macarthur in the back in the Philippines? What really happened on Bataan and Corregidor? At Wake, Hong Kong, Singapore, Java Sea and Midway?

This dramatic book tells what actually did take place. Based on hundreds of interviews in eight countries with generals, admirals, seamen and civilians; on many new documents and manuscripts; and with the full co-operation of the U.S. Department of Defence, Army, Navy and Air Force, the Philippine and Chinese Republican Governments and Japan’s official war historians, this is more than an exciting narrative of battles and leaders – it is a story of individuals who took part in the most critical decisions and momentous events.
