The Days of Infamy series is an alternate history duology by Harry Turtledove, comprising Days of Infamy and End of the Beginning. The first book details a Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941 and subsequent invasion and conquest of all of Hawaii. Ultimately the Japanese are able to over-run the islands, and hold them for two years. Japan declares a restored Kingdom of Hawaii, with a puppet monarch named Stanley Owana Laanui.

The second book details the occupation of the islands, and the subsequent defeat of Japanese forces by the United States in 1943.

As is typical of Turtledove, the story is told by several POV characters:

Notably most of the Hawaiian Japanese, and Japanese soldiers, are from the Hiroshima area or have such roots.
