December 1941: The Month That Changed America And Saved The World by Craig Shirley

This book is a non-fiction account of the events during December 1941. It uses articles from newspapers at the time to paint a picture of what was going on in the world before, during, and after Pearl Harbor was attacked.

I really really wanted to like this book, in fact when I saw the author being interviewed about it I got very excited to read it. I love history and I love reading about World War II. I figured that while reading the book I felt as if I was going to be living in that time and immersed in those events...however I did not. I found the facts to be too dry and the book did not keep my attention. There were some passages I read that entertained me but they were few and far between. The information didn't seem to flow well to me either.As I stated before- I really really wanted to like to book but it just made me feel...bluh.
