Product Description

On December 7, 1941, history changed forever. Just before 8 a.m., hundreds of Japanese fighter planes attacked the American naval base at Pearl Harbor near Honolulu, Hawaii.

For two hours, the Japanese barrage destroyed nearly 20 American naval vessels and almost 200 airplanes. More than 2,000 American soldiers and sailors were killed that day, and another 1,000 were wounded.

The next day, President Franklin D. Roosevelt asked Congress to declare war on Japan. The United States had now officially entered World War II.

This short, easy-to-understand guide reveals the true story of one of the most important events in American history.
