Review: Countdown to Pearl Harbour by Steve Twomey

unknown

This week’s review for the Japan Times is of Steve Twomey’s excellent new book, Countdown to Pearl Harbour: The Twelve Days to the Attack. It’s original both in the form it takes, focusing on the individuals involved and how their personalities and assumptions contributed to the outcome of the attack, but also in how it demolishes what many of us thought we knew about Pearl Harbour. It’s a fascinating book and well worth checking out. You can read my review here.
