The article examines the success with which Japanese naval forces engaged in denial and deception during the period leading up to their attack on U.S. naval assets at Pearl Harbor in Hawaii on December 7, 1941. Combining radio silence, active radio deceptions, and accurate intelligence on the state of U.S. preparedness, the Japanese were able to achieve complete surprise.
