Pearl Harbor on December 7th, 1941

On the 7th of December 1941 the USA official entered the Second World War after being the victim of a sneak attack from Japan. The Japanese attacked the US Naval base at Pearl Harbor in Hawaii with 353 fighters, bombers and torpedo planes in two waves. They launched the attack from six aircraft carriers. All eight US Navy battleships were damaged (four were sunk). Edward Dutch Gaulrapp (a Pearl Harbor survivor) took this photo on the day of the attack. Even though many people lost their lives in this attack (more than 3,000 Americans) this photo is still one of the most stunning examples of war photography that I’ve seen. This photo has been selected as the Daily Cool Photo on Running Wolf’s Rant for the 20th of May 2012.
