Pearl Harbor: A Day Of Infamy

Pearl Harbor: A Day Of Infamy

Early in the morning of December 7, 1941, Japanese carrier-based planes

and submarines attacked the U.S. Pacific Fleet and nearby military

airfields at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii.  Eight American battleships and ten

other naval vessels were sunk or badly damaged.  A total of 64 American

aircraft were destroyed and over 3,400 military personnel were killed or

wounded.  The attack marked the entrance of Japan into World War II on

the side of Nazi Germany and Fascist Italy and the entrance of the U.S.

on the side of the allies – thus World War II.  The attack was always

considered possible but not probable. Were critical judgment errors made

by America’s national leaders and its military that made America so

vulnerable or did motivations by America’s European allies to have

America represented in WW II result in this devastating attack?  Listen

to this stimulating presentation to find out.
