Pearl Harbor Tours Are Living History
The attack on Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941 was an effort to stop American military power from hindering Japanese expansion into the Pacific. The first wave consisted of 183 planes and was launched north of Oahu. The attack began at 7:48 a.m., Hawaiian Time. Torpedo bombers and dive bombers led the first attack on Hickam Field. The surprise attack was successful and over two-thousand American soldiers perished. This event directly led to America’s engagement in WWII and America declared war on Japan the following day (December 8,). America’s victory over Japan was quick and inevitable, changing the course of history, and bringing Japan to its knees and ultimately resulting in victory over the Axis Powers.
