At 7:48 AM Hawaii time, December 7, 1941, began the events of that day which according to Franklin Roosevelt, would live in infamy, as Japan excecuted a suprise attack, that maybe wasn't, on the United States naval base at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii.
One hundred eighty-eight U.S. aircraft were destroyed; 2,403 Americans were killed and 1,178 others were wounded.
Eight U.S. Navy battleships were damaged. Four were sunk. All but the USS Arizona were later raised. Six were returned to service and went on to fight in the war. The Japanese also sank or damaged three cruisers, three destroyers, and one minelayer.
