Long Day's Journey into War: December 7, 1941By Stanley Weintraub
- Author: Stanley Weintraub
This book recaptures the whirlwind events sweeping the world on the calendar day that may be the most momentous of the twentieth century. In the kaleidoscope of Stanley Weintraub's narrative, events reveal themselves in dramatic hour-by-hour simultaneous time as scenes shift from front lines to home fronts. In the day's lens are Roosevelt and Churchill, Marshall and MacArthur, Hitler and Göring, Tojo and Yamamoto, as yet uncelebrated future leaders and obscure participants - all facing the crucial tests of their lives. --from inside jacket.
