Description

On December 7, 1941, the nation of Japan attacked Pearl Harbor and prompted the United States’ entry into the bloodiest war in human history. Americans have long debated the cause of the bombing; many have argued that the attack was a brilliant Japanese military coup or a failure of US intelligence agencies or even a conspiracy of the Roosevelt administration. But despite the attention historians have paid to the bombing of Pearl Harbor, the truth about that fateful day has remained a mystery - until now.
In Operation Snow: How a Soviet Mole in FDR’s White House Triggered Pearl Harbor, author John Koster uses recently declassified evidence and never-before-translated documents to tell the real story of the day that FDR memorably declared would live in infamy. Operation Snow shows how Joseph Stalin and the KGB used a vast network of double agents and communist sympathizers - most notably Harry Dexter White - to lead Japan into war against the United States, demonstrating incontestable Soviet involvement behind the bombing of Pearl Harbor.
A thrilling account of espionage, mystery, and war, Operation Snow will forever change the way we think about Pearl Harbor and World War II.
John Koster is a columnist for World War II magazine and a former newspaper journalist. His work has also appeared in Military History, American Heritage, American History, and other publications. Koster is a US Army veteran and award-winning author.

Critiques

"I found  Operation Snow to be...irresistible.... The attack exacted a terrible toll on both countries and changed the world forever. It is important to understand why that happened. Koster has made a significant contribution." (Admiral Ronald J. Hays USN (Ret), former commander-in-chief of the Pacific Forces)
"To paraphrase Cicero, a nation can survive its fools and even the ambitious, but, as a rule, it cannot survive treason from within, especially when the traitor - in this case Harry Dexter White - is allowed to lead the fools and the ambitious. The US survived. It’s a cautionary tale - the exception that proves the rule." (Thomas K. Kimmel, Jr., former FBI agent, Pearl Harbor scholar, grandson of Admiral Husband Kimmel)
"Fascinating.... What a book! The House Un-American Activities Committee transcripts are arresting in their exposure of White’s duplicity." (Louise Barnett, PhD, professor of American studies, Rutgers University, author of Atrocity and American Military Justice in Southeast Asia)
