AUTHOR: Caren, Eric C.
PUBLISHED: Edison, NJ : Castle Books, c2001.
DESCRIPTION: 96 p. : ill. ; 0.63 x 14.48 x 10.98 inches.
NOTES: Provides great understanding of the American emotions and perceptions to the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. The newspaper articles illustrate what was known, feared, supposed, and not known to the everyday person. Includes US newspaper clippings, as well as Japanese newspapers. Begins with a San Francisco Examiner front page from June , 1926 reading: "Secret Plans of Japanese General Staff Preparing for War with a Western Power". Later, after the Pearl Harbor attack, the Japanese Times and Advertiser newspaper front page reads: "Brilliant War Results Revealed". Further, note the spin by the Japanese: "It is the unshakable policy of the Japanese Empire to preserve stability in East Asia and to contribute towards world peace..." This was the excuse for initiating war with the US, for the purpose of waging peace!
