Are those... torpedos and Japanese people in airplanes attacking us?
Japan wanted to gain power and get more land. They felt that if they attack Pearl Harbor, then they would be able to gain power quickly and easier. They also needed some resources that other countries had.
Ignoring the Warning Signs
Are those... Japanese people?
Another reason why Japan attacked Ameria was that America was shipping them a lot of supplies but they soon decided to stop.
The Date That Will Live in Infamy
Even to this date, I hate Pearl Harbor.
Pearl Harbor was when the Japenese attacked America unexpectedly. It all happened in two waves and they used a lot of torpedos that hit the ships. They soon were thought to go to Hawaii and attack there, so Hawaii had to be guarded everywhere.
The Aftermath of Pearl Harbor
Hey there, Jap!
Before the attack happened, there were some warning signs that America missed. First, there were some ships spotted, and there was a lack of communicatication between the U.S.
Franklin Roosevelt said that Pearl Harbor will live infamy, which means that it has a bad reputation because it was unfair and rude. Pearl Harbor was very bad, so we will never forget it as "the date that will live in infamy."
After Pearl Harbor, both Americans and Japenese got treated badly. America had to recover and heal people, and Japenese people got called "Japs" and were thought to do something bad again.
