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.

He also tells the stories of the men who were pitted against him. After his presentation he responded to questions from members of the audience. close
