On December 7, 1941, the US naval fleet stationed at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, suffered a devastating attack from the air and sea.
The Japanese assault began at 7:48 a.m. , resulting in the deaths of 2,402 Americans, numerous injuries, and the sinking of four battleships, and damage to many more.

Sunday, December 7, 1941, began like any other Sunday at Pearl Harbor, the US's most important Pacific base.

Under the South Pacific sun on December 7, 1941, troops serving the US fleet at Pearl Harbor began a calm Sunday morning unaware that Japanese bombers were headed toward America's most important Pacific base.
There, like a string of pearls draped across the docks and waterfront, was the majority of the US's naval might.
The devastating Japanese onslaught began at 7:48 a.m., eventually killing 2,402 Americans and wounding many others, sinking four battleships, and damaging military airfields.
