One Thing Leads To Another

The War on the United States

The bombing of Pearl Harbor was a surprise attack on a United States naval base located in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. The surprise ambush on December 7, 1941 was the day the United States entered World War II. The attack was originally planned to prevent the United States from interrupting an attack on Britain and the Netherlands conducted by the Empire of Japan. There was a total of 3,684 casualties on the United States. President Franklin D. Roosevelt claimed the sneak attack was "a day that will live in infamy." The attack led to the prejudice against Japanese Americans. The immigrants were interned because the United States government wanted to protect the Japanese Americans, yet the immigrants were put in camps with barb wires and search towers. 
The attack also led to the declaration of war on the United States by the Empire of Japan, Nazi Germany, and the Kingdom of Italy.  If the Empire of Japan had not taken the protective cautions against the United States, the U.S. might have been able to stay out of World War II. The war between the United states and the Empire of Japan totaled 3,748 casualties combined.
The purpose of this website is to discuss the importance of the attack on Pearl Harbor and the war between the United States and the Empire of Japan. We have make comparisons and shown the cause and effects of certain events that took place in World War II. We hope this website will provide a better understanding of the second World War and how it changed the lives of so many people.
