Pearl Harbor was a major naval base for the United States Pacific Fleet. On December 7, 1941 Pearl Harbor was bombed by the Empire of Japan. The Japanese destroyed most of the United States ships anchored in the harbor. It was a horrific day!
not only that but it was because the japs wanted to get to south east asia, they wanted to wipe them out but their biggest threat was the U.S. so they attacked our strongest base from the bottom with topidos and the top with bombs.
