an accident, a mere failure of American
intelligence, or a brilliant Japanese military
coup. By showing that FDR had ample warning of

was initiated at the highest levels of the U.S.
government, Stinnett profoundly alters our
understanding of one of the most significant
events in American history.

strategic vision is knowledge, especially self-knowledge.
