Day Of Deceit: The Truth About FDR and Pearl Harbor by Robert B. Stinnett

In Day of Deceit, Robert Stinnett delivers the definitive final chapter on Americas greatest secret and our worst military disaster.

Drawing on twenty years of research and access to scores of previously classified documents, Stinnett proves that Pearl Harbor was not an accident, a mere failure of American intelligence, or a brilliant Japanese military coup. By showing that ample warning of the attack was on FDRs desk and, furthermore, that a plan to push Japan into war was initiated at the highest levels of the U.S. government, he ends up profoundly altering our understanding of one of the most significant events in American history.

Day Of Deceit: The Truth About FDR and Pearl Harbor

Roosevelt knew in advance of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor on Dec. Now Robert B. Stinnett, a Navy veteran of the war who subsequently made a career as a journalist for The Oakland Tribune, has produced the results of a year search for documentary evidence on this important historical question. Despite a dogged and sometimes compelling effort to substantiate this conclusion, Stinnett has produced no "smoking guns" on the subject, contrary to Gore Vidal's excited blurb on the dust jacket. Stinnett's main and most radical argument about Roosevelt does not overcome previous substantial and contrary historical work on the approach of the war. On less global subjects, too, this book will probably elicit skeptical responses from other historians who will properly argue that Stinnett has failed to take account of less radical explanations for the data he has uncovered. Historians of World War II generally agree that Roosevelt believed war with Japan was inevitable and that he wanted Japan to fire the first shot.

Robert Stinnett served in the United States Navy from to , where he earned ten battle stars and a Presidential Unit Citation. He is the author of George.

Jump to navigation. Stinnett revives another old argument: that Roosevelt knew about the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor and let it happen. Even Buchanan did not stoop to this old saw. A persistent digger, Stinnett has uncovered some nuggets of new evidence, but his most sensational items are premised on the false belief that American intelligence had broken the Japanese naval code before the attack. In fact, it was not decrypted until after Pearl Harbor.
