ended before 10:00am (total of 2 hours) The Outcome After the battle Franklin D. Roosevelt delivered a powerful speech to declare war on Japan December 8th, 1941 after the search for survivors had finished the US began to start salvaging the battleships and other military ships that were sunk in the battle of Pearl Harbour Why Attack? The Japanese were not self reliant for resources and wanted more resources for them selves without having to rely on other countries. When civil war broke out in China, Japan in 1931 occupied Manchuria to gain colonies and exploit more resousouces MORE POWER In June 1940, Japan moved into Northern Indochina.
United States imposed an embargo on steel and scrap metal. They wanted to take over Burma, Malaya, the East Indies, and the Philippines but realized the US Navy was the only thing that could stop their expansion
Premier of Japan, Tojo Hideki, asked his military to devise a war plan Tojo Hideki •Born in Tokyo, Japan on December 30th 1884
•Joined the Japanese army at a young age
•Was prime minister for most of WWII
•Shot himself in the chest in 1945 before he was arrested by the US military when he knew the Japanese wouldn’t win the war
•He survived and after being healed they tried him as a war criminal and executed him Why Pearl Harbor? The Japanese knew that almost all of the immediate forces were naval. By bombing the navy, they managed to cripple any efforts at an attack force following their attack. Luckily the United States' three aircraft carriers were safely out of harm's way. They were out on maneuvers, and were not in port in Pearl Harbor with the rest of the Pacific Fleet.
Due to the tensions of war it was a strategic and thoughtful move made by US commanders to send the aircraft carries out so all the ships weren't together in the same port and accessible to attack. After Hitler invaded Russia in June 1941, Japan moved into southern Indochina. Franklin D. Roosevelt ordered all Japanese assets frozen. (oil) While the Japanese navy was heading towards Hawaii, their ambassadors in D.C. were trying to convince the government that Japan would not attack.
Other targets included San Francisco, large coastal cities, etc. They decided upon Pearl Harbor because it was closer to japan than the U.S., and they would have less distance to travel. The closer they came to the U.S. coast, the larger the chance of being detected, and forced to turn back. During WW1 Japan sided with the Allies but only played a minor part in fighting against the Germans. Nearing the end of the first WW at the Paris Peace Conference of 1919, Japan's proposal of a"racial equality clause" to League of Nations was rejected by the United States, Britain and Australia. Arrogance and racial discrimination towards the Japanese had ruined Japanese-Western relations
