On November 27, 1941 American commanders received a war warning from Washington. They did not mention that Hawaii was a target. The Japanese attacked on December 7, 1941. The surprise attack took place on the military base at Pearl Harbor.
There was a lot of damage after the attack. Many of their ships got destroyed. Along with all the ships there was also 188 airplanes that were destroyed. There was 2,403 people who were killed and 1,178 people who were injured.
Roosevelt discussed stating that this was the biggest crisis facing the U.S since the Civil War. They considered that day as a date that will live in infamy. The U.S started talking about declaring war on Japan.
The U.S made internment camps for people with Japanese ancestry. They feared the Japanese might be spies for the Japanese government. Once the order was repealed many of the Japanese-Americans found that they weren't able to go back home.
Towards the end of WWII the U.S dropped a nuclear bomb over Hiroshima and Nagasaki. It left many people dead and others severely injured. Some of the people who were getting help in hospitals were in so much pain, they begged the nurses to kill them.
Finally, after the bombing, Japan surrendered and WWII was officially over. The soldiers then got to go home after their victory against Japan.
