Ronald J. Drez - PREDICTING PEARL HARBOR Come join us for the launch of historian Ron Drez's new book, PREDICTING PEARL HARBOR: Billy Mitchell and the Path to War. While it's common to say the most predictable thing about the next war is the unpredictability, that wasn't the case in the run-up to war with Japan. From Commodore Matthew Perry's voyage into Japanese waters in 1853 to the attack on Pearl Harbor in 1941, the United States and Japan were on a collision course. The saga is here brought to vivid life using primary-source documents, memoirs, and firsthand testimonies of those who lived during that era. It was Gen. Billy Mitchell who recognized the signs and foresaw the eventual showdown between the two nations twenty-eight years before the tragedy of Pear Harbor, but his spot-on predictions were dismissed out of hand. Discover one of the most exciting periods in American history through General Mitchell's prescient reports, providing new insight into an ages-old confilct. Ronald J. Drez is a decorated combat veteran of the Vietnam War and a former Captain of Marines. He is an award-winning, best-selling author and commander. He is President of Stephen Ambrose Historical Tours having served both as friend and associate of the distinguished, late historian. Event date: Wednesday, September 27, 2017 - 6:00pm
