DE­TAILS: The Franklin D. Roo­sevelt Pres­i­den­tial Li­brary and Mu­seum will kick-off a series of events com­mem­o­rat­ing the 75th an­niver­sary of the Ja­panese at­tack on Pearl Har­bor with an au­thor talk and book sign­ing with Nel­son. Fol­low­ing the pre­sen­ta­tion, Nel­son will be avail­able to sign copies of his book. This event is free and open to the pub­lic. “Pearl Har­bor: From In­famy To Great­ness” fol­lows, mo­ment by mo­ment, the sailors, sol­diers, pi­lots, diplo­mats, ad­mi­rals, gen­er­als, em­peror, and pres­i­dent as they en­gi­neer, fight, and re­act to this mo­ment in world his­tory. Be­gin­ning in 1914, Nel­son maps the road to war, with Franklin D. Roo­sevelt, then the As­sis­tant Sec­re­tary of the Navy (and not yet af­flicted with po­lio), at­tend­ing the lay­ing of the keel of the USS Ari­zona at the Brook­lyn Navy Yard. The book is backed by a re­search team’s five years of work, which pro­duced nearly a mil­lion pages of doc­u­ments, as well as Nel­son’s re-ex­am­i­na­tion of the orig­i­nal ev­i­dence as­sem­bled by fed­eral in­ves­ti­ga­tors.
