Are you certain?  Wikipedia (though, not the best source) says:

Prange's 1963 Tora! Tora! Tora!, published in the November and December issues of Reader's Digest, and later expanded into At Dawn We Slept: The Untold Story Of Pearl Harbor, portrayed the attack on Pearl Harbor, and is credited as the basis for the screenplay of the film Tora! Tora! Tora!, which was produced in 1970, while Prange took a leave of absence from the University of Maryland to serve as the technical consultant during its filming. His extensive research into the attack on Pearl Harbor was the subject of a Public Broadcasting Service television program in 2000, "Prange and Pearl Harbor: A Magnificent Obsession", and was acclaimed "a definitive book on the event" by The Washington Post.[2]

This is confirmed by WorldCat  which lists Tora, tora, tora! as a print book  with the note:
"Condensed for the October and November 1963 issues of Reader's digest, from the forthcoming book by Gordon W. Prange."--Page [3].
