Pearl Harbor- A Day of Infamy
December 7, 1941: the event that propelled the United States into the Second World War. Battlefield expert and author Robert Mueller reviews why and how the Japanese almost wiped out the American Pacific Fleet in one fell swoop. Using the individual stories of men who responded to the attack, Mr. Mueller presents the tactics and consequences of the most treacherous assault ever launched upon American soil. The program ends with a review of surviving relics and, appropriately, a visit to National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific.
