Every school child knows what happened to America on December 7th, 1941. But what happened on December 1st through 6th? Or December 8th through the 31st?

Craig Shirley dug deep to trace, day by day, the events of what turned out to be one of the most pivotal months in all of American history. The Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor changed the lives of millions and the course of history forever.
