  2. 2. Attack on PEARL HARBOR<br /><ul><li> The attack on Pearl Harbor happened Sunday morning, December 7, 1941 at 7:55 a.m. (Hawaii time). It was a surprise attack from the Japanese Navy that shocked the United States .
  3. 3. The attack on Pearl Harbor was the start of WWII</li></li></ul><li>Before the Attack<br /><ul><li>September 1940 -- The U.S. placed an embargo on Japan by prohibiting exports of steel, scrap iron, and aviation fuel to Japan, due to Japan's takeover of northern French Indochina. 
  4. 4. April 1941 -- The Japanese signed a neutrality treaty with the Soviet Union to help prevent an attack from that direction if they were to go to war with Britain or the U.S. while taking a bigger bite out of Southeast Asia. 
  5. 5. June 1941 through the end of July 1941 -- Japan occupied southern Indochina. Two days later, the U.S., Britain, and the Netherlands froze Japanese assets. This prevented Japan from buying oil, which would, in time, cripple its army and make its navy and air force completely useless. </li></li></ul><li><ul><li>Toward the end of 1941 -- With the Soviets seemingly on the verge of defeat by the Axis powers, Japan seized the opportunity to try to take the oil resources of Southeast Asia. The U.S. wanted to stop Japanese expansion but the American people were not willing to go to war to stop it.  The U.S. demanded that Japan withdraw from China and Indochina, but would have settled for a token withdrawal and a promise not to take more territory.
