By: Laura, Amanda E., Derryn,Kayla K, Jesse and Kayla S. Footage of Pearl Harbor Review President Roosevelt's Response The Beginning Aftermath http://education.nationalgeographic.com/education/multimedia/interactive/pearl-harbor/?ar_a=1 The Japanese had a force of six carriers with four hundred and twenty three planes, with an extra thirty ships. At 6:00 am the first wave of eighty three planes left their carriers to greet the American public at 7:53 am. On December, 07, 1941, a Sunday morning the world would never forget Pearl harbor was attacked by the Japanese after thorough planning of Admiral Yamamoto Isoroku and Admiral Nagumo. However, even with the level of preparation, many Japanese citizens were just as surprised as the Americans when the attack off the coast of Oahu began. By 9:45 am the attack was over. It caused the death of 2,335 service men and 68 civilians. An estimated 1,178 people were wounded. Though eighteen ships had been destroyed only the Lexington, Enterprise and Saratoga escaped. All ships but the Arizona and Oklahoma would be repaired and returned to service."Remember Pearl harbor, Work, Fight, Sacrifice. We'll remember and by God, You wont forget!" became a popular slogan to rouse the troops that were soon put into the war. Causes There was an intensifying Japanese-American rivalry in the pacific due to Japan's imperial ambitions.
Left "League of Nations" in 1933 to pursue a foreign policy aimed at creating the "Greater East Asia Co-Prosperity Sphere".
Roosevelt imposed economic sanctions on Japan causing them to turn to axis powers, signing the Tripart Pact in September 1940.
Pearl Harbour was as close as they could get to the US without being detected (It's another 1,000 miles to the US coast). Also the "Zeros" that the Japanese were using could not carry enough fuel to reach the mainland.
Roosevelt and the American public tried to avoid confrontation by isolating the nation from the war. Bibliography www.history.co.uklexplorehistory/ww2/pearl-harborhtml
