Storyboard Text

  • Japan Colonization/Imperialism
  • U.S. Oil/Steel Embargo on Japan
  • Pearl Harbor, Hawaii and the Surprise Attack
  • Japan wanted to expand their territory into China. They had some troops disguise as Chinese soldiers and move into the territory. They then launched their attack and conquered a large part of China including the capital.
  • FRD/"Date that will live in infamy"
  • When the United States heard that Japan was attempting to attack the Philippines to get to the raw materials in the islands like oil they stopped sending oil and steel to Japan to prevent them from becoming a threatening military force.
  • Why Japan Attacked
  • On December 4, 1941 the Empire of Japan attacked Pearl Harbor and Battleship Row. Many American lives were lost and every single battleship that America owned was destroyed. Thankfully none of the Aircraft carriers were lost. 
  • Soldiers Experiences
  • The president at the time of the Pearl Harbor Attack was Franklin D. Roosevelt.The date that will in infamy that he speaks of is the date of the Pearl Harbor attack which is December 4th 1941. A terrible day for sure.
  • Japan attacked Pearl Harbor because they wanted the resources in the islands of the Philippines that the United States controlled. They probably also wanted to weaken the United States since they would more than likely enter the war on the side of the Allies.
  • This day is a day that American soldiers won't soon forget. Whether what they remember is all the death or the attack itself this day will haunt them forever. Some worked in the hospital and the smell of that day was truly terrible.
