·All of the US Pacific fleet’s aircraft carriers were absent.

·Even with the disadvantages, Yamamoto decided to go ahead with the attack.
·The attack was supposed to start 30 minutes after the declaration of war

·5,000-word notification took too long to transcribe and was not delivered in time

·Japan’s newspaper listed declaration of war, US government received it a day late
·November 26, 1941 six aircraft carriers left Japan to get in position

Britain declared war on Japan 9 hours before the US did.

The Japanese American residents and citizens were sent to Japanese-American internment camps.
The novel, A Boy at War is very similar to the research of the Attack at Pearl Harbor

The attack was to be a sneak attack on Pearl Harbor

The morning of the attack, Adam saw a torpedo drop from a plain and land in the water.

Adam witnessed the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor.

Hearing the warning signal of attack from the USS Arizona, he ran to check on his father and watched is father die due to his injuries.

· With so many men in the armed forces, extreme number of women entered the labor force

· After the war, President Truman’s executive order helped to integrate the armed forces

Learning history through Fiction vs Non-Fiction · Reading Fiction only lists half truths to make the story more interesting

· Fiction lets you create a picture of what happened through the eyes of the characters

· Reading Non-Fiction tells you what actually happened

· Non-Fiction gives you the facts and allows you to create a picture of what occurred in history

· Fiction might keep you entertained, but Non-Fiction will actually help you learn the history of the world.
