Today is the day of which it was said by FDR that it was “a date which will live in infamy:” the day Imperial Japan attacked Pearl Harbor without provocation. It was December 7, 1941.
Here are pages which include both description and a number of images which were captured of the attack (from both perspectives). One image which particularly struck me was this one of the Japanese servicemen cheering on the planes as the left for the attack. Little did they know that this action would lead directly to the destruction of the Empire of the Rising Sun.
Fewer and fewer of the participants who survived the attacks remain alive today. May we not forget Pearl Harbor.
