Attack on America Pearl Harbor: If you are fond of reading a little bit of history, then you would also know about the Second World War and the importance of December 7. Actually, only a few minutes of this one day had changed the outline of the whole world war and the picture of Japan.
The Second World War witnessed the nuclear attack for the first time, but what happened that suddenly America dropped two atomic bombs on Japan, the answer to this question is quite interesting and not everyone knows it. The nuclear attack itself was the result of the mistake that Japan made on December 7, 1941. He had to pay a heavy price for this. Let us tell you what happened on 7 December 1941.
2403 US soldiers were killed
The world war had started. The two sides were engaged in encircling each other. Meanwhile, Japan wanted to reduce the power of Britain’s friend America, so that it could not help Britain. With this intention, Japan made a plan to destroy the US Pacific Fleet. For this, on December 7, 1941, he attacked the American naval base Pearl Harbor. In this attack, 2403 American soldiers were killed, while 1178 were injured. Apart from this, 18 US naval ships and 328 US aircraft were also damaged by the Japanese attack. After this attack, America also got directly involved in World War II by declaring war against Japan.
The attack was done with solid planning
Japan had done this attack on America with complete planning. It was early morning on December 7, 1941. Under the leadership of Japanese Army Commander Misuto Fuchida, 183 fighter jets took off from six Japanese warships stationed east of Ohio. After this, 171 fighter jets under the leadership of Lieutenant Commander Shigekazu Shimazaki targeted Pearl Harbor. Japan did this attack in two phases. He also used fighter jets, bombers and torpedo missiles.
America gave an unforgettable answer
Six out of eight US warships, cruisers, destroyers and more than 200 aircraft were destroyed by the Japanese attack. The discussion of this attack started happening everywhere. The then US President Franklin D. Roosevelt called it a ‘day of infamy’ on December 7, 1941, and on December 8, 1941, America directly joined World War II. To avenge this, he dropped ‘Atom Bomb’ on Hiroshima and Nagasaki of Japan.
That’s why Sunday morning was chosen for the attack
Japan did its homework before the attack on Pearl Harbor. The Japanese army deliberately chose Sunday. Actually, he knew that the people of America spend their Sundays having fun and relaxing. This is the reason why the attack was done in the morning. Earlier, the planning of Japan was to do the attack in the early morning, but due to the fog, it was carried out at 7:30 in the morning.
