The Japanese attack on the US Military bases in the Hawaiian Territory particularly the Naval Base at Pearl Harbor brought the US into World War 2.
Most of the American Ships were at their base.
It was more than one dock. ALL of Pearl Harbor was bombed orotherwise attacked. However, not all of the American Fleet waspresent at the time of the attack. Notably the two US aircraftcarriers were at sea. The main area attacked was called Battleship Row, a mooring alongthe southeast side of Ford...

America occupied the Phillepines since the Spanish American War. UStroops were there since the 2nd World War began.
Once the post WW2 events ended, such as the deciding about what todo with Germany and the war trials. It was actually a short while before the soldiers were sent homeafter World War 2.
After the attack on Pearl Harbor the US declared war on the AxisPowers. (Germany, Japan, Italy, and others) The Japanese began togive it all at the Battle of Midway. They failed and neverrecovered. They were on the defensive for the rest of the war.

"A day that will live in infamy." Franklin Roosevelt
Well the US government maintained the ship was sunk by a Spanish mine. This was made popular by war mongering media outlets. In truth, the matter is still controversial. Conspiracy theorists have argued that the US government in fact blew up the ship to give a pretext for war. However Admiral...
Pearl Harbor, Hawaii on the morning of December 7, 1941.
Well there are multiple types of attacks from an airplane/plane/aircraft. If an airplane is bombing, it would be considered an air raid.
Ultimately, we are responsible for 9/11 and the lives that were claimed at home and abroad. The longer we wait to take responsibility for the attacks, the harder it will be to restore peace to the planet. If you really want the individuals who are the dirt bags, then you need to look at the V.P....
This person explains the reasons for the Japanese bombing Pearl Harbor better than I can. The Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor for different reasons:- . President Roosevelt had banned all exports of scrap iron, steel and oil to Japan. The reason for the embargo was the Japanese invasion of China....
Only three were lost permanently: USS Oklahoma, USS Arizona, and the USS Utah (redesignated training/tgt ship). All three are still on the bottom (Oklahoma between CA and Hawaii). However, whats interesting is that some of the surviving BBs at Pearl Harbor ended up permanently on the bottom of the...
Japan bombed Pearl Harbor. That incited the USA to declare war on Japan and Germany.
Since Europe (primarily the UK) has always been the ancestral background of the United States, Europe has always been a priority in all wars; including WWII and Vietnam. Examples: 1. Defeating Germany first in WWII, was actually "saving Great Britain first", since only Britain and the Soviets were...
Douglas MacArthur. Very famous one, too.
After the Pearl Harbor attack on Dec. 7th 1941, the USA. declared war on Japan, thus entering World War 2. During WW 2 the atomic bomb was made, and the military made 2 invasions on Japan. The war raged on until 1945, when both Japan and Germany surrendered and gave up their conquests. Japan agreed...
\n. \n Answer \n. \n. \nEssentially the U.S. had been looking for an excuse to participate in the war without looking like the "bad guys." Wheras the Japanese assumed that the U.S. would be incapacitated by the attack, what they didn't know was that most of our aircraft carriers were at sea and...
On December 7, 1941 at 6:30 in the morning a Japanese mini sub wasspotted, shot at and sunk in Pearl Harbor. The telegram sent toNavy command stated that there had been a sighting/confrontationwith a Japanese sub but without the telegram saying the sub wassunk it was not thought to be true. By 7:55...
The attack on Pearl Harbor from Japan, made the US get involved in the war. After about 5 years of fighting, the US dropped an atomic bomb over Hiroshima on august 6 1945.
Before Japan did it, it was not a mistake. It was deliberate, well-planned, specifically targeted and expertly executed. However, in view of the consequences, and with the benefit of hindsight, some in Japan may have concluded that the attack, even if not a 'mistake', was perhaps rather short...
The US leaders responded by declaring war on Japan and Germany (Japan's ally). They were furious and sad about the bombing and death. They spent weeks trying to figure out how to recover from the bombing and devise strategies to fight on two fronts. Eventually they had their revenge when the...

12 million. 12 million About 17 million in total died.
At the end of World War II, few questioned Truman's decision to drop the atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Most Americans accepted the obvious reasoning: the atomic bombings brought the war to a more timely end. They did not have a problem with over one hundred thousand of the enemy being...
i said i will go down infamy
at the end of ww2 because of food shortages
The 442nd Infantry Regiment (442nd Regimental Combat Team)
NO, but the USS Arizona had huge guns. 18 in in diameter.
In the end, the Japanese
Home port and place of repair.
US troops defended themselves at Pearl Harbor mostly with small arms. Many fired pistols and rifles at attacking planes. There's about a one in a million chance of doing the enemy plane any damage, but its satisfying. At least one sailor did shoot down a Japanese plane with a BAR - a Browning...
The Pearl Harbor attack lasted only one morning, December 7th, 1941. The World War 2 lasted until August 1945.
There were close to 100,000 Japanese-Americans living in California in 1940.
The exact date of the attack is December 7, 1941.
The US placed an oil/steel embargo on Japan, due to it's invasion of Manchuria prior to '38. 1. Artillery shell and Bomb casings are constructed of steel. 2. Oil's needed to power: Warships, tanks, and airplanes.
They didn't feel they were entitled to the islands. They attacked Pearl Harbor to eliminate the US Battle Fleet stationed there.
Their have been many conversations I have heard/seen in books/documentaries that implied President Roosevelt knew that the Japanese were preparing to attack. The only one concession is that they also imply that it was not clear WHERE the attack would take place.
Roughly 2-3 thousand people were killed in the attack on PearlHarbor. Long story short, it wasn't truly a bombing. It was an annihilation .
on December 7, 1941, a 'date the united states of America was suddenly and deliberately attacked by naval and air forces of the empire of japan. they attacked on pearl harbor suddenly, on this day many peoples died and they face big loss. by the first attack on pearl harbor the people get angry and...
Japanese pilots from the Zuikaku and Shōkaku aircraft carriers are the pilots who bombed Pearl Harbor. There were also six mini submarines that were sent to attack the ships but they were not very successful.
There were eight US battleships in Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941, and all of them got bombed to some extent. Four of them sank - the USS Arizona, the USS Oklahoma, the USS West Virginia and the USS California. The West Virginia and the California were later raised, repaired and modernized, and...
Japan was first subjected to an aerial bombing attack during the Doolittle Raid .
Some sources indicate that the higher ups knew.
3 Ships Survived Pearl Harbor.
Pearl Harbor was the base for the American Pacific fleet and mostof the fleet (maybe all ) were in Pearl Harbor at the time of theattack. By destroying the US Navy fleet, it would cripple theability to respond to Japanese aggression. Imperial Japan hadassurances from Germany and Italy that these...

No Japan bombed pearl harbor.
The Imperial Navy sailed with oilers (fueling ships); and refuelled at sea.
Answer . Pearl Harbor is on the Island of Oahu, and so is the city of Honolulu.
Answer . No. Truman had given permission to use the bomb before the warning to surrender was given, so their answer didn't matter. Lives were sacrificied with a bomb that was not fully understood.
When Roosevelt said that December date would be a "date which will live in infamy" he meant that the Americans would not forget December 7th, 1941 when Japan bombed Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. The Date has been commemorated and it is our job to be certain our children never forget what happened and why it...
Because Japan planned and carried out the attack.
Japan attacked Manchuria, this causing the second world war.
They must have been political would seem that we are to think that the Japanese thought that they could beat the Americans in a war. Perhaps the Germans who were their ally gave them some sort of guarantee fro attacking the US fleet as they did declare war on the US directly after the Attack. I...
We commemorate the date of the bombing on December 7th every year. It happened on Dec. 7, 1941.
Japan bombed Pearl Harbor, Hawaii on December 7th in 1941 and World War 2 officially started for the United States.
I would change the attack on Japan by implementing personal talks with the Emperor and President Roosevelt. The Emperor failed to truly govern his leaders and people. He was swayed by the military leaders too much. He did not understand the plight of the Japanses populous. They worshipped him as a...
Whey were detected but they thought the Japanese were a group of b-25s from California
=== Hawaii's physical features are landforms that have low lands === Mountains, valleys and coastlines.
WWII carriers had a complement of about 2,500 officers and men.
Philadelphia Naval Base
Well I think its because Japan underestimated the Allies industrial capabilities but that's kind of open for debate
I Can Give You Only One Answer And Thats The U.S.S Arizona
Pearl Harbor is on the southern part of the Island of Oahu. From Tip to Tip Oahu is roughly 150 miles to the large Island of Hawaii.
Japan attacked Pearl Harbor because they wanted to remove the threat of the US naval fleet.
For docking ships and planes
Six fleet carriers. The names of the carriers was ziukaku, shokaku, akagi, kaga, hiryu, and soryu The Japanese used about four aircraft carriers during the attack on pearl harbor. Each carrying about ten to twenty Japanese fighters. .
29 airplanes and 5 mini-subs: 29 airmen and 10 sub crewmen. If the planes were torpedo/dive bombers they had 3 airmen per plane.
The reaction was the same, with the same results: December 7, brought on World War Two (a global war) with the US entry into the war; September 11, brought on the Global War on Terrorism.

This is an opinion question but I do not mind answering. Japan had military might and many victories. I do not think the Japanese could have conqured the United States for these reasons. . The United States had rescources the Japanese badly needed or did not have.. The United States had the ability...
Because of the high population of Japanese living on the islands.
Nothing they were not involved in the War before that.
The USS Constitution was "laid up in ordinary" in Boston on July 4, 1828. The was the sailing era's equivalent of mothballs. This was necessary because the ship was badly in need of maintenance, with rot in her wood. By that time she had lasted two to three times as long as a sailing ship was...
The bombing of Pearl Harbor on 12/7/41 by the Japanese angered the Americans. They finally had their own motivation to declare war on both Japan and Germany.
The main character in Pearl Harbor is First Lieutenant/Captain Rafe McCawley played by Ben Affleck.
All throughout WWII.
