The path to war in December 1941 is retold

on the US Navy station at Pearl Harbor, in Hawaii.

diplomatic efforts by both nations continue, but
intercepts of Japanese diplomatic messages show
Japan is practicing deception and planning
aggression - but there is no clue as to where
Japan will strike.
