Pearl Harbor

Presented by Gary Augustine

Sunday, December 7, 1941, they swooped in from the north in waves of torpedo, dive, and fighter planes that were launches from six Japanese carriers. As the planes arrived over Oahu Island, they came upon a large US Naval Base at Pearl Harbor. At 7:58 a.m., the first bombs exploded. The last Japanese plane departed around 9:30 a.m., leaving a mass of destruction and 2,402 American soldiers dead. In the aftermath, the public had many questions. Why was the American military surprised? Who was to blame for this catastrophe? Join our speaker as he narrates the events, and the myths of December 7th.
