Pearl Harbor was a very important world event that happened December 7, 1941. The Japanese spent months planning their attack on Pearl Harbor and at the same time they where trying to negotiate a peaceful solution. The well and carefully planned attack was developed to wipe out Pearl Harbor in one strike. Pearl Harbor was an American navel base on the Hawaiian Island of Oahu. The Japanese felt they had to attack Pearl Harbor because of an embargo on the oil to Japan. And they where trying to build their defenses and Japan only had a two year supply of oil left. They attacked because they thought the American forces were weakened and unprepared. The Japanese had the greatest Arial strike force then ever before. They attacked just before 8am killing 2400 Americans and sinking 5 out of 8 ships and soon after they destroyed much of the air force on the island. Pearl Harbor was a swift and devastating event. It brought the Americans into World War II.
There was an atomic bomb attack on Japan August 6 and August 9. The Americans dropped two atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. This was to secure the surrender of Japan. The affects of the explosion were devastating. About 120,000 people died immediately from the two attacks and many more from the radiation. 95% of the casualties were Japanese civilians. Japan surrendered on August 15, 1945
If the Japanese did not surrender many more lives would have been lost. It was the first use of an atomic bomb in history. so ya thats my essay thingy and uh uh ya so please grade me accordinly cuz u suck as a teacher
