Pearl Harbor Day

Posted on December 7, 2011 at 2:34 pm

Skip the Ben Affleck movie and watch these to commemorate the anniversary of the day the Japanese bombed the US Naval base in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii.

As news of the attack reached the world, everyone waited to hear what the President would say. Franklin Roosevelt’s stirring response is still remembered:

Attack on Pearl Harbor: A Day of Infamy Japanese pilots and American sailors, eyewitnesses and participants comment on the events of the attack accompanied by newsreel footage, and analysis by military historians.

The History Channel’s Pearl Harbor The History channel provides background to understand what led to the attack and information about the military tactics. The documentary includes coverage of the Harvard-educated Japanese Admiral who planned the attack and interviews with both Japanese and American survivors.

 

Pearl Harbor: Legacy of Attack This National Geographic documentary follows Robert Ballard, the man who discovered the remains of the Titanic, as he explores the first casualty of the attack, a Japanese midget submarine that was sunk by an American destroyer an hour before the Japanese airplanes made their appearance.
