prepare for an attack on the US US broke Japanese secret codes to discover the planned attack but did not know when or where it would occur FDR sent military war warnings to bases in Hawaii, Guam, and the Philippines FDR believed if war was inevitable, then Japan would commit the first act Peace talks went on until December 6, 1941 when the US decoded a Japanese message instructing the Japanese diplomats to reject all US peace proposals This means war. - FDR

Japan Attacks Pearl Harbor December 7,1941 Japanese Attack on Pearl Harbor (Oahu Island of Hawaii) 1.5 hour attack Over 180 aircrafts launched from 6 aircraft carriers US could not effectively mount a counterattack 2,403 Americans killed, 1,178 wounded, 21 ships sunk (8 battleships), over 300 aircraft destroyed or damaged BUT 3 aircraft carriers were out at sea and were spared. It was a mess. I was working on the USS Shaw. It was on a floating dry dock. It was in flames. I started to go down into the pipe fitters ship to get my toolbox when anther wave of Japanese came in. I got under a set of concrete steps at the dry dock where the battleship Pennsylvania was. An officer came by and asked me to go into the Pennsylvania and try to get the fires out. A bomb had penetrated the marine deck, and three decks below. Under that was the magazines: ammunition, powder, shells. I said, There aint no way Im gonna go down there. It could blow up any minute. I was young and 16. Not stupid. John Garcia, Pearl Harbor witness

US Response to Pearl Harbor I never wanted to have to fight this war on two fronts. We havent the Navy to fight in both the Atlantic and the Pacific so we will have to build up the Navy and the Air Force and that will mean that we will have to take a good many defeats before we can have a victory.

He learned how to sleep in the mud, tie a knot, kill a man. He learned the ache of loneliness, the ache of exhaustion, the kinship of misery. He learned that men make the same queasy noises in the morning, feel the same longings at night; that every man

is alike and that each man is different.

Philippines in Oct 1944 People of the Philippines: I have returned. - MacArthur The Japanese Defense Kamikaze divine wind attack in which Japanese pilots crashed their bomb-laden planes into Allied ships Not used until 1944 a strange mixture of respect and pity Vice Admiral Charles Brown Despite the effectiveness of

scientist, J. Robert Oppenheimer July 16, 1945 1st test a red-hot elephant standing balanced on its trunk. Trumans Decision July 26, 1945 Truman ordered military to make final plans to drop atomic bombs on 2 Japanese targets The final decision of where and when to use the atomic bomb was up to me. Let there be no mistake about it. I regarded the bomb as a military weapon and never had any doubt that it should be used. US warned Japan that it faced prompt and utter destruction if it did not surrender immediately.
