Inhaltsangabe: From the last survivor of Admiral Kimmel's staff, this astonishing book reveals the transcript of a telephone warning between Churchill and Roosevelt eleven days before Pearl Harbor, showing the British and Hitler knew of the oncoming disaster, but Kimmel did not.
Vom Verlag: When the United States Navy fleet suffered a surprise attack by the Japanese at Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941, President Franklin D. Roosevelt called it "A date that will live in infamy." But, just how big of a surprise was it to Roosevelt and his closest aides? Retired Navy Lieutenant Commander (LTC) Kenneth Landis and retired Army Staff Sergeant Rex Gunn, both present at Pearl Harbor during the attack, explore the facts and mysteries surrounding who knew what and when in their book Deceit at Pearl Harbor: From Pearl Harbor to Midway, published by 1stBooks Library in July 2001.
Deceit at Pearl Harbor highlights the fact that Roosevelt allegedly knew about the attack weeks before it occurred, yet kept this information from the public as a means of swaying public opinion in favor of joining the war after the attack had taken place. As the last surviving member of Admiral Husband Kimmel's (then Commander of the Pacific fleet at Pearl Harbor) staff, LTC Landis also serves to disprove that the lack of readiness for the attack was the fault of Admiral Kimmel.
The information found in Deceit at Pearl Harbor offers the reader a firsthand look at the attack on Pearl Harbor, and reveals shocking and disturbing information, some of which has never been in the public light until now. Dealing with the attack and the subsequent victory at Midway over the Japanese, turning the tide of the War in the Pacific, and, thus, signaling the end of World War II, Deceit at Pearl Harbor is a must read for history and war buffs, conspiracy theorists, and recreational readers. The book offers never before seen photographs, some taken by LTC Landis personally, and several appendices including information on Winston Churchill's warning to Roosevelt about an impending attack and a timeline of the events leading up to and following the attack on Pearl Harbor.
LTC Kenneth Landis was born in Chicago, and received a commission in the U.S. Navy shortly after graduating from Northwestern University with a degree in Industrial Engineering. He was first assigned to the USS Sculpin, and later assigned to Admiral Kimmel's staff at Pearl Harbor (a lucky break for Landis, as the USS Sculpin was later sunk with total loss of life). After the attack on Pearl Harbor, Landis earned the command of the USS Isabel, one of the legendary "tethered goats," and also was a member of Admiral Halsey's Third Fleet, seeing action at Iwo Jima and Okinawa. Landis currently resides in La Quinta, California and remains active in the Palm Springs chapter of The Pearl Harbor Survivors Association, of which he is vice-president.
Staff Sergeant Rex Gunn was born in Little Rock, Arkansas, and followed his older brother into the military. Becoming a member of the Signal Corps, Aircraft Warning Company, he was assigned to the first U.S. radar post in the Pacific theatre. After the surprise attack on Pearl Harbor, he became a GI war correspondent for the 7th Army Air Corps picture magazine, Brief. With Brief, he covered the Tarawa and Abemama Eniwetok, and the Marianas Islands campaigns at Saipan, Tinian and Guam. After the war, he earned his doctorate from the University of Southern California. In 1995, he retired and returned to Hawaii, marrying his old sweetheart from the war days, and died four years later.
