"December 1941" by Craig Shirley is the most interesting history book I've ever read. This book isn't just a historical account of the events surrounding World War 2 in December 1941. This book actually reads more like an actual story, as Shirley dives into the economic, social, and financial atmosphere of the United States, day by day, from December 1st, before the Pearl Harbor attack, through December 31st. It's really interesting to read, to understand how the Pearl Harbor attack was a pivotal moment that changed our country forever. Each chapter of this book is one day in December 1941, with facts about the war, explanations of the events going on in the United States, and the attitude of Americans. I found this to be an extremely insightful look at not only the war itself, but the way that our country and people were so changed by Pearl Harbor. It is a fascinating read, and I would highly recommend it.
