Who? What? When? Where? Why? How?
On December 7, 1941 353 imperial Japanese fighter planes, bombers, and torpedo planes attacked an American Naval base called Pear Harbor. There were a lot of reasons why the Japanese attacked, one was to provoke the United States to lift the economic sanctions against them.They also intended to destroy important American fleet units to prevent the America from interfering with Japanese conquest of the Dutch East Indies and Malaya. Also, to get rid of Americas Navy because they were prestige ships. The attack lasted for two hours; it destroyed 20 ships, killed 2,000 American soldiers and sailors, and wounded 1,000 #restinpeace #remember. The attack led Amrica into World War II.
