On December 7, 1941 Japan bombed Pearl Harbor, Hawaii right before 8 am. The officers working that day had just woken up, having breakfast, and not expecting a thing. Because of that they were unprepared. The USS Arizona was one of the many ships that got hit. The ship immediately sank, taking 1,177 crew members on that ship. Japan’s aggression was literally being fueled by the United States. Beginning with the late-1940, the United States grew less patient with Japanese atrocities and began to restrict trade with the empire. In Europe busy fighting Hitler, the United States remained the only obstacle to the establishment of a huge Japanese empire spanning East Asia.
On Sunday morning, December 7, 1941, at 7:55 AM the Japanese Empire led a surprise attack on the US Naval base Pearl Harbor in Hawaii, that would leave millions of Americans in shock, and heartbroken. Before the attack, the United States kept a low profile on International affairs, and concentrated on the domestic affairs at hand. This tragic moment in American history forever remembered. It is a mournful day for the American people, although, for the Japanese Empire it was an honorable day, one they would call a
The Israelites spent 430 years in bondage. Although the Israelites had left Egypt, Pharaoh still sought after them by chasing them with his army. God accomplished the complete liberation of the Israelites by allowing Moses and his people to cross the Red sea and then drowning the Egyptian army that followed. “Around 1209 BC, Egypt lost control of Syria-Palestine in this period due to internal difficulties” (Thronveit and Gaiser).This was as a result of the events at the Red Sea. After Liberation was completed, God preserved the Israelites in the wilderness through miraculous provisions.
I have heard them crying out because of their slave drivers, and I am concerned about their suffering. So I have come down to rescue them from the hand of the Egyptians and to bring them up out of that land into a good and spacious land, a land flowing with milk and honey—the home of the Canaanites, Hittites, Amorites, Perizzites, Hivites and Jebusites. And now the cry of the Israelites has reached me, and I have seen the way the Egyptians are oppressing them. So now, go. I am sending you to Pharaoh to bring my people the Israelites out of Egypt.” But Moses said to God, “Who am I that I should go to Pharaoh and bring the Israelites out of Egypt?” And God said, “I will be with you. And this will be the sign to you that it is I who have sent you: When you have brought the people out of Egypt, you will worship God on this mountain.” Moses said to God, “Suppose I go to the Israelites and say to them, ‘The God of your fathers has sent me to you,’ and they ask me, ‘What is his name?’ Then what shall I tell them?” God said to Moses, “I am who I am. This is what you are to say to the Israelites: ‘I am has sent me to you.’” God also said to Moses, “Say to the Israelites, ‘The Lord, the God of your fathers—the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac and the God of Jacob—has sent me to you.’ “This is my name forever, the name you shall call me from generation to generation. “Go, assemble the elders of Israel and say to
“A date which will live in infamy” . This is a quote said to congress by the Commander- in- Chief Franklin Roosevelt. After the bombing of Pearl Harbor Roosevelt asked congress to declare war on Japan. Pearl Harbor was a surprise to the United States, a great plan to the Japanese Empire, and a gateway to World War II. The attack on Pearl Harbor took a toll on countries all over the world. That day in 1941 has been and forever will be the most infamous act of the Japanese Empire.
One year ago today on the 7th of December 1942, the tragic, malicious attack on The United States Naval Base of Pearl Harbor occurred. The Imperial Japanese made a surprise attack onto our country, an attack that affected our country in a negative way, and forced our hand into war. Over the past year, the United States of America have taken actions, starting just the day after the attack on Pearl Harbour, and we have regained our strength and are fighting against evil.
At 7:55 AM on Sunday, December 7, 1941, hundreds of Japanese warplanes, launched from aircraft carriers far out at sea, attacked the American Pacific fleet anchored at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. The attack took a terrible toll: eight battleships, including the USS Arizona, three light cruisers, three destroyers and four other naval vessels were either sunk or damaged. One hundred and sixty-four American aircraft were also destroyed. Most hadn’t even gotten off the ground. And 2,403 Americans, servicemen and civilians, were dead.

On December 7, 1941, the U.S was attacked at pearl harbor by the Japanese. During that morning 350 planes attacked the base making sure most of it was destroyed. There were not many eyewitnesses due to the surprise attack the Japanese conducted. There were 2,400 deaths that day, and almost all the base’s ships were destroyed. A memorial was built after the men and women that died that day. The devastation caused America to enter war against japan. America also had to begin rebuilding their naval fleet so the pacific would be defended. All the damaged Ships were placed back into battle after they were repaired. War had been declared against America, leaving the country with not many options to take.
December 7th 1941 Japan decided to launch an unexpected attack on the United States pacific fleet. Just before 8am Japan dropped hundreds of fighter planes on the American naval fleet at Pearl Harbor which is in central Oahu, Hawaii. The Japanese destroyed close to 20 American naval vessels, including 8 huge battleships. Although America had a lot of major losses at this stage, Japan didn’t know about the American aircraft carrier at this point. All they knew was that the naval ships were the most important and them being oblivious to these panes. America could now fire from miles and miles away and had the potential to destroy a lot. Pearl Harbour was home to many natives Americans that died in the attack. Over 2000 American soldiers and
Today, December 7, 1941 has become one of the most tragic events that have taken place in history. The Japanese has attacked our naval base at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. It wasn’t only the military personnel who were affected but it was also their families including the civilians living on the island of Hawaii. “The
On December 7, 1941, one of the most devastating attacks in United States history occurred at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. On the morning of that day, unsuspecting soldiers were going about their regular duties when an air attack from Japan hit them. Japan sent hundreds of airplanes carrying bombs that brought utter destruction and devastation to hundreds of military equipment, airplanes, and weapons. In a relatively short period of time, 2,402 Americans were killed, and 1,282 were wounded (Merriam). The attacks came during a time where no one on the military base was expecting it, nor were they prepared for such an act to occur. The impact that it had on the United States was astounding. It was shortly after the attack on Pearl Harbor that the United States declared war on Japan and officially entered World War II (Hill). This war against Hitler and the Nazis was one that the United States had avoided since its initiation, but after this attack, the U.S. had no choice but to join the already ongoing war.
Japans history dates back almost 53,000 years and is filled with interesting and fascinating events. Most of Japans actions have left the major world powers in the world stunned. The base of this amazing country is astonishing just by itself. The base is a bunch of active and large under water volcanoes. Japans uniqueness from the rest of the world ranges from its culture to its very interesting history to the change in government every few hundred years and their trading dilemma with petroleum and their assortment of fish that they export. Japan as a country is so very appealing and kind compared to the rest of the world its no wonder that it’s geographically separate from the rest of the world.
Western Influence on Japan Japan, as a nation, is a continually changing society. Ever since western nations became involved with Japan, its changes over recent times have increased at a substantial rate. Japan now faces cultural, economical and social differences as a result of the western involvement. The involvement was initiated by the Japanese themselves, beginning during the Meiji Period1 through current times.
Throughout the course of East Asian history, Japan has been largely influenced by the Asian mainland. From ancient times to the medieval period, significant contributions to Japan can be seen coming from both Korea and China. Both of these countries diffused elements of their cultures to form the basis of Japanese society – namely China. These foreigners would influence various aspects of society including technology, philosophy, politics, and religion.
Devastation struck Japan on March 11, 2011 when the main island, Honshu, was rocked by the worst earthquake in the country’s history. According the U.S. Geological Survey, the earthquake, named the Great East Japan Earthquake, was so severe it shifted the earth’s axis by 10 cm and the jolt of the earth’s crust triggered a tsunami of epic proportion. Carrying a wall of water over 10 meters high and massive enough to been seen by the International Space Station, the tsunami claimed more lives than the earthquake itself. Japan is a country that has faced more than its fair share of disaster in the last century. The country has witnessed the city of Hiroshima devastated in 1945 by an atomic bomb, and the city of the Kobe devastated by a
