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. The book tells the story of Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto, a Harvard-educated leader of the Japanese military who was the mastermind behind not only the bombing of Pearl Harbor but on much of Japan’s military success in the Pacific. 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
