Summary
"Glen Williford lends new insight into the reasons for America's relatively quick comeback from the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. For the first time, he tells the complete story of U.S. efforts to build and reinforce its Pacific garrisons in the Philippines and Hawaii during the six months before the war and to supply Bataan and Corregidor in early 1942"--Dust jacket
