Attack on Pearl Harbor

Taken from the book, At Dawn We Slept, by Gordon Prange.

Written on Sept. 6, 1941 by journalist Clarke Beach.

"A Japanese attack on Hawaii is regarded as the most unlikely thing in the world, with one chance in a million of being successful. Beside shaving more powerful defenses than any other post under the Am. flag, it is protected by distance."
