Mr. Davis talked about his book Lightning Strike: The Secret Mission to Kill Admiral Yamamoto and Avenge Pearl Harbor, published by St. Martin’s Press. He wrote about the secret mission to retaliate for the Japanese bombing of Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941 by killing the Japanese commander who orchestrated the attack.
