by Whitman Chambers

A spellbinding, breathtaking adventure based on true facts. Deep and well-informed, Invasion! is not only a novel full of imaginative power and captivating story-telling, it is also a picture of what could possibly happen should the Japanese plan an invasion of the Pacific coast of the US. The author, a former U.S. Navy officer, displays masterful skill not only in narrating but also in envisioning how such a catastrophe would happen, basing on his military knowledge and his perfect acquaintance with the whole Pacific Coast. It is a novel about people, teaming up to prevent the unimaginable, about military skill, and about the clash of two world powers. 320 pages. 5.75 x 8.25 inches.
