Pearl Harbor was the spark that ignited the second world war in the United States. Prior to the attack on Pearl Harbor, attitudes in the United States were divided as to whether the country should enter the war with Germany or Japan. Many, perhaps most, people were not inclined to sacrifice the souls or resources of the country in a fight that was not judged our own. Pearl Harbor made the fight our own! Men, women and children rose to the challenge of war on two fronts. Lives were lost, resources spent and final victory achieved.

In yugioh what if final attack orders and level limit area b are both on the field at the same time?

Rulings say that the cards resolve in order of activation.If Final Attack Orders was activated first, then Level Limit - Area B, all level 4 or higher monsters would be switched to Defense Position because Level Limit - Area B was activated most recently.Likewise, if Level Limit - Area B was activated first, then Final Attack Orders, all monsters would switch to Attack Position because Final Attack Orders was activated most recently.Be careful though, if you activate Level Limit - Area B then chain Final Attack Orders, the chain would resolve in reverse order, meaning that Final Attack Orders resolves first, then Level Limit - Area B. This would be the first case, where Level Limit - Area B was activated most recently.Hope I helped.
