Avenging Pearl Harbor
The definitive and previously untold account of Operation Vengeance, the American military operation to kill Japanese Naval Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto, the man who devised the attack on Pearl Harbor.
The New York Times bestselling author Dick Lehr expertly crafts this "hunt for Bin Laden"-style WWII story as he recreates the minute-by-minute events of Pearl Harbor. Lehr explores the tremendous spycraft and rising military tradecraft undertaken in its wake, and goes behind the scenes at Station Typo in Hawaii, where U.S. Navy code breakers’ discovered exactly where and when to find Admiral Yamamoto. He also chronicles, in detail, the nearly impossible, nerve-wracking mission to kill him. Includes 8 pages of black-and-white photos.
