On December 7, 1941, the Japanese launched an attack against U.S. naval forces stationed in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. But what if the Japanese followed up their air assault with an invasion and occupation of Hawaii? This is the question explored by Harry Turtledove in Days of Infamy, with frightening implications. With American military forces subjugated and civilians living in fear of their conquerors, there is no one to stop the Japanese from using the islands' resources to launch an offensive against America's western coast.

"In this tale of alternate history, the Japanese invade Hawaii in December 1941 and change the course of WWII. The story is told from multiple viewpoints, including those of inhabitants of Hawaii and both American and Japanese military personnel. John Allen Nelson approaches the narration in a level and matter-of-fact style. He reads rather than performs the story, and this gives the sense of listening to a war report, particularly during battle scenes. The lack of vocal characterization can make it difficult to differentiate the key characters. However, Nelson's style is strangely hypnotic and draws listeners into a story that shows how history could have been very different. K.J.P. (c) AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine"
