Synopsis by Jason Buchanan
When the Japanese military launched a surprise attack on Pearl Harbor on that fateful day in December of 1941, the United States was caught completely off guard by the formidable force of 350 heavily armed aircraft -- leading to one of the most tragic events in U.S. military history. How could the military base not have known about such a massive attack? Was it due to the amazing strategy of the Japanese pilots, or did their fighters just hit the right place at the most unexpected and vulnerable time. Perhaps it was a bit of both. Now, thanks to Eagle Rock Home Video, viewers can explore this landmark day of infamy and find out how the attack on Pearl Harbor still resonates with the U.S. military over half-a-century after the fact.
