Transcript of "Pearl Harbor"

  1. 1. Pearl Harbor By: Lucas Corbin & Ian Keating
  2. 2. Pearl Harbor Pearl Harbor is where the U.S. pacific fleet was destroyed by the Japanese. The Japanese made a surprise attack on December 7, 1941 The bombing by Japanese airplanes killed over 2,000 service men aboard the ships
  3. 3. Pearl Harbor On December 6, 1941 president Roosevelt made a final peace attempt to the emperor of Japan, but the emperor never replied. The same day a Japanese message was intercepted by U.S. code breakers. The Americans believed that a Japanese attack was imminent, but they weren’t sure where the Japanese would attack.
  4. 4. Pearl Harbor On December 7, 1941 code breakers decoded another message The message instructed the Japanese embassy to deliver the message to Americans at 1 p.m. The U.S. War Department sent an alert message to Pearl Harbor to warn them of the attack. The alert message wasn’t received until four hours after the attack began.
  5. 5. Pearl Harbor The Japanese attack force had six carries with 423 planes. They launched their first wave of 183 planes The U.S. radar station on Hawaii detected the planes, but thought they were only the expected American B-17 planes from the west coast.
  6. 6. Pearl Harbor After the first wave launched, the second wave of 167 planes also took off for the harbor The first wave reached the harbor at 7:53 and began attacking the U.S. battleships and airfields.
  7. 7. Pearl Harbor The second wave arrived shortly after the first wave. They focused on taking out other ships and shipyard facilities. The waves of Japanese attack forces launched torpedoes, dropped bombs, and used other military tactics to destroy their targets.
  8. 8. Pearl Harbor By 9:45 a.m. the Japanese were finally done attacking.  Five battleships were sunk and eight were damaged. The U.S. also lost 188 aircrafts when the Japanese attacked the U.S. airfields.
  9. 9. Pearl Harbor The servicemen aboard the ships stood no chance against the well prepared Japanese war planes. Many military men were trapped in the ships and couldn’t get out to help fight. Most of the men that were trapped in the ships never made it out alive.
  10. 10. Pearl Harbor One of the reasons why the attack on Pearl Harbor was so catastrophic is because the harbor was completely surprised. The anti-aircraft guns were unmanned and the ammunition for them was locked away because it was during a peacetime. Servicemen were ashore because it was a Sunday and aircrafts were parked wing tip to wing tip at the airfields.
  11. 11. Pearl Harbor News of the attack spread across the nation the same day. It shocked the American people and influenced many young people to join the military. The attack ended the U.S. period of isolation. The next day December 8, 1941 the U.S. declared war on Japan. President Roosevelt said, “December 7, 1941 is a date which will live in infamy.”
