When did the Japanese bomb Pearl Harbor?

The attack was December 7, 1941 - and began at 7:55 AM local

time.

The US had not declared war on either Germany or Japan in World

War II, but had issued an embargo on oil being shipped to Japan.

The Japanese had apparently intended to declare war prior to the

attack, but failed to complete this task.
