It was on a Sunday morning, December 7, 1941 when the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor. It was a surprise military strike conducted by the Japanese navy against the United States' naval base at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. The attack consisted of two aerial attack waves totaling 353 aircraft, launched from six Japanese aircraft carriers. The attack sank four U.S. Navy battleships (two of which were raised and returned to service late in the war) and damaged four more. The Japanese also sank or damaged three cruisers, three destroyers, and one minelayer, destroyed 188 aircraft, and caused personnel losses of 2,402 killed and 1,282 wounded. (source: wiki)
