This first episode examines the indictment of Admiral Harold R. Stark as Director of Naval Operations prior to the attack on Pearl Harbor.

Secretary of the Navy, James Forrestal lists four charges against Admiral Stark about the critical weeks prior to Pearl Harbor. In his concluding Naval Court of Inquiry report on Stark, he refers to Pacific Fleet Commander Husband Kimmel's letter to Stark dated May 26, 1941, where Kimmel wrote that "he needed to be informed of all important developments as they occurred by the quickest and most secure means available."

Forrestal writes about the four charges, "In my opinion, Admiral Stark failed to give Admiral Kimmel an adequate summary of information available in Washington."
