This date, 68 years ago, has been called a date which will live in infamy. That's how president Franklin D. Roosevelt reacted after learning of the 1941 Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor.
The event eventually propelled the U.S. into World War II. Just before eight o'clock on a Sunday morning, nearly 400 Japanese warplanes attacked the home port of the U.S. Pacific Fleet. The results were devastating; five battleships, three destroyers and seven other ships were sunk or severely damaged, more than 200 aircraft were destroyed...and some 2,400 Americans were killed that day.
