America was shaken by the attack on Pearl Harbor, it did not anticipate this attack, know what was Japan's plan

On the morning of December 7, 1941, 80 years ago today, during World War II, Japan attacked Pearl Harbor in America. This was the first attack on American soil in World War II, carried out at the US Naval Base at Pearl Harbor. This attack completely blew America's senses.

what happened at pearl harbor

Japan bombed the American naval base at Pearl Harbor for one hour and 15 minutes. Japan wanted to target America's fuel tanks, but this could not happen. Japan thought that Pearl Harbor would have a large number of American aircraft carriers, but in reality it was not. In this attack, the naval air station and port located in Ford Island of America were completely destroyed.

2400 American people and soldiers were killed in this attack. With this, 328 American aircraft were completely destroyed. Also 19 ships, in which eight warships were also completely destroyed. At the same time, more than a hundred soldiers of Japan were also killed in the attack. The Second World War took a new turn with this attack by Japan. The armies of 70 different countries were involved in this war.

What was the reason behind the Pearl Harbor attack?

This first attack of Japan on Pearl Harbor was very shocking for America. America was not prepared for this attack and neither could it have imagined it. Because just a day before the attack, Japanese representatives in Washington were in talks with US Secretary of State Cardell Hull to end economic sanctions on Japan. The US imposed these sanctions on Japan due to the increasing interference of China.

Angered by these sanctions of America and the help of Allied forces given to China, Japan had announced to attack America in its country. After the Pearl Harbor attack from Japan, US President Franklin D. Roosevelt announced directly to join the Second World War. After which America's joining the war changed the situation in Europe. Especially Britain got a lot of support from America and played its role in this world war by becoming a strong country.

How did the Pearl Harbor attack end?

After this, avenging the Japanese attack on America's Pearl Harbor in 1941, the end of World War II was ended four years later by the US in 1945 by atomic bombings on two Japanese cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Japan had to pay a heavy price for attacking America. The US resettled Pearl Harbor a year after the end of the war, but it took several years for Japan to resettle its two cities, Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
