Perilous Pearl

pearl-harborSeventy-five years ago today, a Japanese strike force of 353 planes staged a surprise 110 minute attack in two waves on Pearl Harbor, killing 2,403 Americans. Of the eight battleships in Pearl Harbor that day, four were sunk, one was capsized, one run aground, and two were badly damaged, crippling the US Pacific fleet. 11 other ships were destroyed, as were 169 planes. In 6/42, America was victorious at Midway.
