Book by Zimm Alan


Alan D. Zimm has not only mined a treasure trove of primary and secondary sources to produce a detailed analysis of the attack, but also presents much of his findings from not just the US standpoint, but predominately, and most interestingly, approaches the subject matter from the Japanese point of view, July 2011

His book is far from a simple retelling of a familiar tale; instead, he has presented an in-depth study of the Japanese planning, preparation, and execution of the attack, with particular focus on factors not thoroughly considered by other historians, if at all. --Proceedings, August 2011

There is no shortage of books about the 1941 attack on Pearl Harbor, but this one - by an operations analyst, the head of the Aviation Systems and Advanced Concepts Group in the John Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory - approaches the subject as an analysis of the Japanese operational planning and execution. --Seapower, September 2011

... definitely read Alan Zimm's Attack on Pearl Harbor for a fuller and more up-to-date understanding of an event that changed history and continues to fascinate. --Michigan War Studies Review, September 2011

Alan D. Zimm, in his outstanding new book, presents meticulous analysis estimating that had Short and Kimmel ensured Pearl Harbour s air defenses were on alert prior to the atttack, the Japanese might have lost as many as 307 of 354 planes - an 88 percent loss rate . --Armchair General, January 2012
