World War II: Attack on Pearl Harbor - History

World War II: Attack on Pearl Harbor - History This event single-handedly spurred the United States into joining the conflict in World War II. The Japanese attack on Hawaii’s Pearl Harbor was meant to crush American morale, as well as immobilize the Americans so Japan could continue its conquests around the world unimpeded. The attack was the culmination of decades of tension that existed between the U.S. and Japan, and was the breaking point needed to force the Americans from their stance of neutrality and into the war. In Part 4 of our series on WWII, WatchMojo.com learns more about the years leading up to the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, and about the results of this historic event.
