This momentous special reveals the untold story of the little-known, yet pivotal, events that occurred after President Roosevelt received the call that Pearl Harbor had been attacked on December 7, 1941. Author Steve Gillon (The Kennedy Assassination: 24 Hours After) has unearthed new evidence from the FDR Library that shows the true panic that gripped the White House and shook the nation. Fearing an aerial attack in Washington, D.C., the underfunded U.S. Army assembled wooden sticks on the White House roof to resemble weapons from above. Concerned that a Japanese assassin might try to take Roosevelt's life as they drove him to Congress to deliver his speech, the Treasury Department used a bulletproof car confiscated from Al Capone. For the first time, the FDR library provides details that offer an intimate look at the paralyzed man behind the presidency, and how he had to be lifted out of bed and placed in braces and straps to hold him upright during his pivotal December 7th speech when he declared it a date which will live in infamy.moreless
