On December 7, 1941, six Japanese aircraft carriers launched a surprise attack on the Pearl Harbor U.S. naval base in Oahu, Hawaii. More than 2,300 U.S. troops were killed in the attack, and around 1,200 more were wounded. This book details Japan's motivations and planning efforts, as well as the U.S. reaction and resulting entry into World War II. It also contains a detailed recounting of the attack itself.
