A True Story about the message that arrived too late.
On 7 December 1941, Washington sent a message to its Pacific outpost about a potential Japanese attack. All but Pearl Harbor received it in time to prepare. New information from the archives of George Street, District Manager of RCA-Communications, Honolulu, exposes the fatal flaws that resulted in the surprise attack. Operational snafus, collusion, and spies weave a web of misdirection that entangles George Street and his children in one of history's biggest mistakes. Pearl Harbor's Final Warning amends the historical record by presenting unpublished material, including the original copy of General Marshall's coded message. This riveting account tells my family's Pearl Harbor story.
