Interpretation: At 7:55 A.M. on Sunday December 7, 1941, one hundred and eighty-three Japanese airplanes launched an unprecedented surprise attack on United States military and naval facilities at Pearl Harbor. Located on the island of Oahu in the Hawaiian Islands, Pearl Harbor housed nearly 100 U.S. Navy battleships, destroyers, cruisers, and various support ships on that day. Japanese dive bombers and torpedo planes struck airfields and naval vessels for thirty minutes. At 8:40, after a fifteen minute lull, a second wave of 170 planes launched another attack, targeting other ships and shipyard facilities, which lasted one hour. Casualties to U.S. service personnel were listed as 2343 killed, 960 missing, and 1272 wounded. One hundred and fifty-one U.S. planes were destroyed on the ground and all eight battleships at anchor in Pearl Harbor were either sunk or damaged. At a cost of only 28 planes shot down, the Japanese had dealt the U.S. a tremendous blow. On Monday December 8, 1941 the United States and Great Britain declared war on Japan with President Franklin D. Roosevelt calling December 7th "a date which will live in infamy..." After the shock of the attack on Pearl Harbor, Americans abandoned their isolationist stance in favor of a total commitment to the war. This poster, part of the government's aggressive propaganda campaign to gain public support for the war, reflected the prevailing mood of the country
