December 7, 1941 Pearl Harbor is Attacked

This attack became known as the “the day that will live in infamy”.  Over 2000 American sailors were in killed in the surprise attack by Japanese forces.  Many survivors lived to tell first hand accounts.

However, some people believe the attack wasn’t a surprise at all.  Their theory is that the U.S. had advance knowledge of the attack but let it happen anyway to gain public support for entering World War 2.
