Before the Pearl Harbor attack there were some 120,000 American soldiers. At the end of the war the USA had about 16 million under arms (most of them reservists); about 4 million Americans were in military action in Europe (against Germany and Italy) and half a million men were in action in the Pacific (against the Japanese).

The US Military has been stationed at Pearl Harbor since 1898. The answer your Teacher is looking for is "Neutral". The US remained NEUTRAL before Pearl Harbor.

The primary target at Pearl Harbor was the US Navy (Sailors), the US Army (Soldiers) were a secondary target. US Servicemen were just waking up on a Sunday morning, when the attack came.

before Sorry - the US kept out of any military action until after Pearl Harbor, although she certainly had an enormous navy roaming around the seas.

Yes: The bombing of Pearl Harbor was unprovoked. And in point of fact Japanese soldiers had already landed on the Malay Peninsula before Pearl Harbor....

The US Civil War probably caused more American casualties then any other war before or after that war. When the results of a battle lists the number of casualties, it means that soldiers that were either killed of sent to military hospitals due to battle wounds are classified as casualties.

Yes and no. As America was not involved in ww2 prior to 1941 it was illegal for American soldiers to engage in combat. However, some Americans went to Canada to join the Canadian military forces. Others, pilots, joined the British RAF Eagle squadron an outfit designed for American pilots to fight in the RAF even though the US was not officially at war.
