While it's common to say that the most predictable thing about the next war is its unpredictability, that wasn't the case in the run-up to war with Japan. From Commodore Matthew Perry's voyage into Japanese waters in 1853 to the attack on Pearl Harbor in 1941, the United States and Japan were on a collision course.
The saga is here brought to vivid life using primary-source documents, memoirs, and firsthand testimonies of those who lived during that era. It was Gen. Billy Mitchell who recognized the signs and foresaw the eventual showdown between the two nations twenty-eight years before the tragedy of Pearl Harbor, but his spot-on predictions were dismissed out of hand.
Discover one of the most exciting periods in American history through General Mitchell's prescient reports, providing new insight into an ages-old conflict. Hihlights of the book include:
- Billy Mitchell's early war predictions
- A look at the mindset of imperial Japan
- Insight into news media from that era
- Important events leading up to Pearl Harbor
- Decline and court-martialing of Mitchell
