On December 7, 1941, the Imperial Japanese Navy launched a devastating surprise attack on the US naval base in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, leaving 2403 Americans dead and more than 1000 wounded. Five ships and 188 aircraft were destroyed. Never before had the Americans experienced such an assault by a foreign power on their own soil. More than a century of isolationism had been swept aside and the US was propelled into a conflict that would ultimately result in it becoming the international superpower and 'policeman of the world' that we know today. Released to coincide with the 75th anniversary of the attack, this 132-page volume looks in detail at how the events of that fateful day changed world history forever.
