* Official Pearl Harbor attack report
* President Harry S. Truman releases
* Japan occupation just before peace signing
On August 29, 1945, with America’s enemies vanquished, President Harry S. Truman released the results of secret Army and Navy investigations into the Dec. 7, 1941 Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor that took the lives of more than 2,400 Americans, sunk or damaged 21 ships in the U.S. Pacific fleet and brought the United States into World War II. The reports found top commanders in Washington – particularly former secretary of state Cordell Hull and Gen. George Marshall, the Army chief of staff — largely responsible for the lack of preparedness at Pearl Harbor.
The front page has a banner headline: "Pearl Harbor Report Released" with subheads and photo of General George C. Marshall. (see images)
Also reporting on the occupation of Japan just before the historic signing on the USS Missouri a few days later.
Complete with all 20 pages, light toning at the margins, a few small binding holes along the spine, nice condition.
