Visions of Infamy: The Untold Story of How Journalist Hector C. Bywater Devised the Plans That Led to Pearl Harbor

Japanese Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto smashed the American fleet at Pearl Harbor on Dec. 7, 1941, yet the man who first conceived of the Pacific war -- Japan's surprise attack, the seizure of the Philippines & Guam, & the American island-hopping campaign -- was a British naval correspondent, Hector C. Bywater. He wrote a series of brilliant books & articles in the 1920s & 1930s that prophetically outlined naval strategies that would read like a blueprint for the Pacific Theater during World War II. Bywater's ideas created an uproar & then were quickly forgotten. But Yamamoto adopted Bywater's ideas as his own. Photos.
