Pearl Harbor Aftermath
This paper describes why Pearl Harbor was attacked by Japan during World War II and how the United States retaliated against the profound act of aggression.
This paper historically describes the bombing of Pearl Harbor during World War II by Japan. The paper does so through the personal reflection of a soldier at the time of the attack in 1941 and with tribute to his great dedication and bravery for defending the United States
“The tragic day at Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941 left the American people in a furious, yet fearful state. An unwarranted action of attack was thrown upon us as Japan invaded one of our islands and murdered our citizens. It was people such as my grandfather, Aubrey Hunter, that were willing to take up arms and enlist themselves in the military to help stop Japan from advancing in their murderous ways. It took strength, a great amount of courage, personal sacrifice, and the willingness to potentially give their lives for the cause. It were these attributes from men, such as my grandfather, and women that allowed our U.S. military to build itself up again and revenge the deaths of everyone who died at Pearl Harbor.”
