Part 2- On December 7, 1941, Claude C. Bloch was Admiral in charge of the 14th Naval District in Hawaii at the time of the Pearl Harbor Attack.

However, Admiral Husband Kimmel and General Walter Short were both considered to be responsible for the disaster, and were relieved of command. Without another name to directly associate with theirs, the perception by many was and still is that they alone were to blame for what happened at Pearl Harbor.

Was there another name or third man that should have shared the blame for what happened in Hawaii? The answer is yes. The man is Vice Admiral Claude C. Bloch, commandant of the 14th Naval District at the time of the attack. This episode is part two of two parts uncovering the details of that fateful day involving Admiral Bloch.

This week's episode is based on the book "The Indictment of the Pearl Harbor 5," by Donald J. Young, which is available on .
