The New York Times bestselling master of military historical fiction tells the story of Pearl Harbor as only he can in the first novel of a gripping new series set in World War II’s Pacific theater. In 1941, President Franklin D. Roosevelt watches uneasily as the world heads rapidly down a dangerous path. The Japanese have waged an aggressive campaign against China, and they now begin to expand their ambitions to other parts of Asia. As their expansion efforts grow bolder, their enemies know that Japan’s ultimate goal is total conquest over the region, especially when the Japanese align themselves with Hitler’s Germany and Mussolini’s Italy, who wage their own war of conquest across Europe. Meanwhile, the British stand nearly alone against Hitler, and there is pressure in Washington to transfer America’s powerful fleet of warships from Hawaii to the Atlantic to join the fight against German U-boats that are devastating shipping. But despite deep concerns about weakening the Pacific fleet, no one believes that the main base at Pearl Harbor is under any real threat. Told through the eyes of widely diverse characters, this story looks at all sides of the drama and puts the reader squarely in the middle. In Washington, Secretary of State Cordell Hull must balance his own concerns between President Roosevelt and the Japanese ambassador, Kichisaburo Nomura, who is little more than a puppet of his own government. In Japan, Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto wins skeptical approval for his outrageous plans in the Pacific, yet he understands more than anyone that an attack on Pearl Harbor will start a war that Japan cannot win. In Hawaii, Commander Joseph Rochefort’s job as an accomplished intelligence officer is to decode radio signals and detect the location of the Japanese fleet, but when the airwaves suddenly go silent, no one has any idea why. And from a small Depression-ravaged town, nineteen-year-old Tommy Biggs sees the Navy as his chance to escape and happily accepts his assignment, every sailor’s dream: the battleship USS Arizona. With you-are-there immediacy, Shaara opens up the mysteries of just how Japan—a small, deeply militarist nation—could launch one of history’s most devastating surprise attacks. In this story of innocence, heroism, sacrifice, and unfathomable blindness, Shaara’s gift for storytelling uses these familiar wartime themes to shine a light on the personal, the painful, the tragic, and the thrilling—and on a crucial part of history we must never forget.

Wake the Sleeping Giant uses anecdotes to show why students "turn off" in the school system, who is responsible for turning the students off and methods with which to inspire the students to turn back on. Most of the difficulties which face children today do not originate in the home. They arise out of "The Sleeping Giant"-our educational system. This manuscript is written for parents and teachers. It not only criticizes, it gives solutions. While the solutions provided in this book cost little financially, they challenge the teachers, education administrators and parents to change their whole approach to the child. One section of the book details the methods I have used to take eighth grade basic math classes from a third grade level to pre-algebra in less than three months. Another explains an educational game called "Challenge" which I developed to encourage students to read for important facts, develop questions, learn to find the answers for themselves, and peer teach. The game is fun and can be used in conjunction with any text book. As can be seen nightly on local and national newscasts, our children are in crises. Parents, politicians and educators are desperate to find ways to motivate children to read, write and do math. I believe that Wake the Sleeping Giant helps us come closer to that ideal. A sequel is being written at this time.

This book is written for those who are spiritually asleep to be awakened in order to carry out the Great Commission of Jesus Christ. To operate in the supernatural led by the Holy Spirit that it may be said of the modern-day Christians as it was said of the early Christians; they are turning the world upside down. Wake up, the alarm is sounding. This is no time to press the snooze button and continue to doze, because the rapture is imminent. In a dream, I saw a multitude of people flying like birds into the sky. It seemed as if they were being drawn up by a giant magnet. I said in amazement, "This is it. The rapture is taking place." I saw many people walking around on the ground, seemingly unaware of what was taking place around them. Suddenly I was taken up by the spirit of God as well and flown around in the sky, but just as quickly as I was taken up, I was placed firmly back down on the ground. Wake Up the Sleeping Giants will explain in detail why I was placed back on the ground and not raptured at that time. Also how I became spiritually awakened with a mandate to help sound the alarm for others who are yet spiritually asleep. Jesus is coming for His bride, the Church.
