Danger's Hour


Product Description
Product Details


"This is a riveting, thought-provoking, superbly written history that unfolds and surprises like a novel. What we are permitted to participate in is nothing short of hell: a glimpse into the most asymmetrical warfare we Americans have ever faced -- the kamikaze pilot."-- Ken Burns, Filmmaker
"One of the little-known aspects of World War II was the role played by Japan's suicidal kamikaze pilots and their devastating impact on the U.S. Navy in the Pacific. Maxwell Taylor Kennedy tells their story in a detailed, vivid, credible, highly readable narrative."-- Stanley Karnow, author of "Vietnam: A History"
"This book is a triumph -- an original conception, a dramatic narrative superbly told, with lyrical portraits of brave men on opposite sides of a titanic struggle and impeccable research masterfully rendered. With "Danger's Hour," Maxwell Taylor Kennedy's talents as a first-rate historian, an intrepid interviewer, and a wonderful writer are on full display."-- Doris Kearns Goodwin, author of "Team of Rivals"
"This fascinating story of the deadliest kamikaze attack in World War II provides a vivid window on the war in the Pacific. But it also contains critically important insights for today's struggle against terrorists. Maxwell Taylor Kennedy shows how suicide bombers are recruited, the role they can play in asymmetric warfare, and how our military can be resilient in face of such attacks."-- Walter Isaacson, author of "Benjamin Franklin: An American Life" and "Einstein: His Life and Universe"
