On December 7, 1941, the nation of Japan launched a surprise attack on the U. S. Naval base at Pearl Harbor on Oahu Island, Hawaii. President Franklin D. Roosevelt immediately declared it “as a date that will live in infamy.” Japanese planes, numbering 350, destroyed nearly 170 aircraft and damaged another 160, with three ships destroyed and another 16 damaged.
