Attack On Pearl Harbor December 7, 1941 - Honoring All Who Served & Died
The attack caught America by surprise. Two waves of military planes struck, the first hitting it's projected targets just before 8am and the second hitting an hour later. A little before 10am it was over and Japanese planes headed home in the early afternoon. It was hoped by the Japanese that the attacks would extinguish any ability the Americans had to propel sea and air power in the Pacific for at least half a year. The attack on Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941 remains an American tragedy that was a catalyst for WWII.
