On December 7, 1941, the Japanese Navy launched a surprise attack on American military bases in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. Well-planned and excellently coordinated, the attack devastated the US Pacific Fleet: in less than two hours, Japanese aircraft had sunk or damaged all eight US battleships anchored in the harbor, and had destroyed 151 planes. Unwillingly thrust into battle, the United States could have only one response - war. This book illustrates the attack that brought the United States into the Second World War through 36 pages of comic book-style narrative. It includes eight pages of background information, detailing the key players, the experience of the forces and the aftermath of the battle.
