Japan invades and conquers Hawaii after the attack on Pearl Harbor, in the most provocative alternate history novel yet from the author of "1901, 1862," and "1945."

I like Conroy every bit as much as Harry Turtledove. This was a great book that entertained me and kept me reading. ( )

Good AH of a stronger attack on Pearl harbor, followed by an Japanese invasion. ( )

What if the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor had made one more pass and taken out the fuel storage tanks? Would they then have invaded Hawaii? How could the US have responded? What would have happened to the Hawaiians? What would have been the long-range effects on the war?

Conroy makes a novel out of these speculations. Not as good as his novel of the invasion of Japan, 1945, or his brilliant 1901, about a German invasion of New York that never was, but a good read for military history and alternate history buffs. ( )
