70 years after the day of infamy

8 Dec

Today is the 70th anniversary of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, Hawaii.
It was 1941 December 7th in Hawaii when the attack occurred…but, due to the time difference, it was December 8th in Japan.

So in Japan, December 8th is considered the anniversary of 「真珠湾攻撃」 (the Pearl Harbor Attack), but in America it’s December 7th.

Here are some American World War II propaganda posters made after the Japanese attack of Pearl Harbor.

    Very ironically, a WWII era bomb was found in a construction site on the base and was detonated on Dec 7 (did you happen to see it on the news?).

      No, I didn’t hear about that. Was it an American bomb from the fire-bombing of Tokyo during WW2?
