1942: A Novel

Robert Conroy

December 7 is “the date with a purpose to dwell in infamy.” yet now Japan is hatching one other, a ways larger plan to convey the USA to its knees. . . .

The eastern shock assault on Pearl Harbor used to be a powerful success–except for one aspect: a moment bombing project, to break the most important oil garage amenities, used to be aborted that day. Now, during this gripping and beautiful paintings of exchange heritage, Robert Conroy reimagines December 7, 1941, to incorporate the assault the japanese didn’t release, and what follows is an exciting story of struggle, resistance, sacrifice, and braveness. For while Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto sees how badly the USA has been ravaged in a two-pronged strike, he devises one other, extra bold inspiration: an all-out invasion of Hawaii to place a stranglehold at the American Pacific Fleet.

Yamamoto’s procedure works brilliantly–at first. yet a handful of yank squaddies and a made up our minds civilian resistance struggle again within the face of cruelty unknown in Western struggle. Stateside, a counterassault is planned–and the pioneering MIT-trained aviator Colonel Jimmy Doolittle is given a near-impossible venture with a fleet of seaplanes jury-rigged into bombers. From spies to dull heroes and people stuck among cultures at conflict, this can be the epic saga of the conflict of Hawaii–the manner it just about used to be. . . .
