"A Date Which Will Live in Infamy"
Q: How did American policy toward events in Europe and Asia change over time?
George D. Phraner, Aviation Machinists Mate First Class, aboard the USS Arizona on December 7, 1942:
"Seconds after the explosion the lights went out and it was pitch black....a thick acrid smoke filled the magazine locker and the metal walls began to get hot. In the dark and not being able to breathe, we made our way to the door hatch, only to find it shut and locked. Somehow we were able to open the hatch and start to make our way up the ladder. I was nauseated by the smell of burning flesh, which turned out to be my own as I climbed up the hot ladder. A quick glance around revealed nothing in the darkness, but the moaning and sounds of falling bodies told me that some of my shipmates had succumbed to defeat and had died in their attempt to survive."
