December 7, 1941


On this day in 1941 Pearl Harbor was bombed at 7:55 a.m. (Hawaiian time) a Japanese dive bomber bearing the symbol of the Rising sun of Japan on its wings appears out of the clouds above the Island of Oahu. A swarm of 360 Japanese warplanes followed descending on the U.S. naval base at Pearl Harbor in a ferocious assault. The surprise attack struck a critical blow against the U.S. Pacific fleet and drew the United States irrevocably(those who don’t know this word it means unable to be repelled or unalterable)  into World War II.
