Pearl Harbor

December 7, 1941 will always be "the day which will live in infamy." The bombing of Pearl Harbor will be a historical, yet traigc even that will no one will ever forget. Specifically, one will rememeber why it happened, the aftermath of it all and the people who were involved.


Doris "Dorie" Miller was the first African American to receive the "Navy Cross."Without training, he fired machine guns when the West Virginia was bombed (Gorman).


Who did What

Another person involved was current president, Franklin D. Roosevelt. In 1941, after Japan had invaded Indochina, Roosevelt was the person who placed the embargo on oil and closed the Panama Canal to Japan (Hamen).

In the book, the attack on Pearl Harbor was the final straw that had lead Darlene Rose and all of her loved ones to the inprisnoment of the Japanese (Rose).

AftermathBoth America and the Japanese had suffered losses of warplanes, battleships and men. After the attack America had five sunken ships, three sunken cruiseres and destroyers, three damagede battleships, 188 destroyed planes, 155 damaged planes, 3,581 miltary men killed and 103 civilians killed. Japan had lost twenty-nine planes, five sunken midget submarines and fifty-five airmen were killed. The day afterwards, December 8, 1941, President Franklin D. Roosevelt declared war on Japan making America part of World War II (Keese, Sidwell).


Evidence Not Seen

Why?The primary cause to all the makeshift and distruction in the war, was all corrolating to the effort of Japan to keep territory in the Pacific rather than the U.S. forces, and to gain as much control and territory(Gorman) surprise bombing, Japan was in hopes to conquer these islands in the pacific that hold great military attributes and geographic location. Under the Japanese emporer, Hirohito, Japan was on the road to their unknown self destruction with war against the U.S. They would be plauged with the unexpected military forces of the United States, and some japanese people would be placed in internment camps.
