In this alternate history of World War II, the Japanese follow up their Pearl Harbor attack with the successful occupation of Hawaii, and America is marshalling its military forces-from east coast to west-to reclaim the islands from the enemy.



Thrilling and thought-provoking in a way that not nearly enough alternative history is. -- Kirkus Reviews, starred review

An able continuation of the outstanding exploration of the unpleasant WWII alternate scenario that Turtledove launched in Days of Infamy. -- Booklist
