This paper will discuss about the comparison between pearl harbor and 911. It will analyze, evaluate, and describe the responses the presidents had about these events. It will also investigate the roles that class, culture and religion played in these attacks that happened in the United States. After the 9/11 attacks a lot of newspapers from Boston to Bakersfield reached into the distance past to find the correct title so there headline was “A New Day of Infamy” The same verse that President Franklin Roosevelt used to describe the bombing of Pearl Harbor.
I think that during W.W.2, When the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor that it was a terrorist attack. This event reminds me of 9/11 because It happened out of nowhere. We were also not at war at the time with Iraq. The same events that could relate to each other is They both devastated America, not only that but they both attacked us with planes.
by being caught off guard we lost 2,977 lives. The goal of Pearl Harbor was to take down the U.S. Navy, which they succeeded in because again the U.S. was caught off guard. The result of being caught off guard was losing almost all navy ships and losing 2,500 lives. Although the attacks of Pearl Harbor and the Twin towers are very similar, they are very different also.
Introduction: The Second World War, WWII, was a global war as it involved most of the world’s countries, lasting from 1939 to 1945. There are many points of view as to why WWII was fought, but it ultimately goes back to the end of World War I, and the signing of the Treaty of Versailles. Adolf Hitler slowly rebuilt German forces and, driven by his expansionist policy, first invaded Czechoslovakia in March 1939 and then Poland on 1 September 1939 prompting the declaration of War from Britain and France. America managed to stay out of the war, citing neutrality, until 1941.
The events of September 11, 2001 and the attack on Pearl Harbour were both considered days of infamy that have left a major impact on the United States. Even though these events are drastically different they do have some similarities. For example one similarities these two events have is that they both occurred in the mourning. One difference between these events have is that Pearl Harbour affected many people at the Naval Bases and the events of September was target more towards civilians. September 11 and Pearl Harbour both have many similarities and differences but are days that will be remembered forever.
Date of Infamy Similarities Even though the attacks of september 11, 2001 and December 7, 1941 are different, they are also similar in many ways. They were both targeted to destroy many lives as well as property. The pearl harbor attack destroyed about 2000 lives and a large amount of military equipment and supplies such as 20 american vessels and more than 300 airplanes. The September 11 attack was meant to take big amount of innocent lives including men, women, and children, it took about 3000 lives. Also since the twin towers were financial and business buildings, they meant to destroy the economy of the country.
A catastrophic event. The bombs and torpedoes were heard around the world. Not only did it affect Pearl Harbor itself but, all of America, specifically It impacted American civilians in a lot of ways. The first way that civilians were affected is that it made American Civilians want to dive straight into the war. Think about it, Pearl Harbor made America say “Okay let’s go, we can fight to.”
The subject that was chosen to write about was Pearl Harbor and why it was so significant in world war 2. Pearl Harbour was significant because it brought America into World War 2, virtually all Japanese Americans were forced to leave their homes and property and live in camps for most of the war, and the use of atomic bombs at Nagasaki and Hiroshima The first reason that Pearl Harbour is significant is because of the way president Franklin Delano Roosevelt reacted to the bombings. President Roosevelt was outraged by the Japanese attack. In response to the surprise attack on Pearl Harbour, President Roosevelt declared war on japan.
This attack was honored by the Islamic State of Terror and sometimes called the new Pearl Harbor. On this day many innocent American lives were lost over a short period. The attacks killed 2,996 people, injured over 6,000 others, and caused at least $10 billion in infrastructure and property damage. Two planes crashed into the trade center towers in New York city while one plane crashed into the Pentagon and another one was brought down. These aircraft were hijacked by Islamic terrorist and deliberately flown to these locations to cause harm to the American people.
This paper is going to be be about the U.S. and Japan during World War II, and about how it started, what happened and what this resulted in,also how this war between these two countries affected the world. The attack by the Japanese on Pearl Harbor started a war with the U.S . Japan had launched an attack towards the U.S. on December 7, 1941. This is a tragic event in history for the United States of America.
In American history, there have been few disastrous attacks against the country that have caused masses of casualties and chaos throughout the United States. On Sunday, December seventh, 1941, around eight o’clock in the morning, a bombing occurred from Japan at the American naval base, called Pearl Harbor, in Hawaii. Despite various arguments against this attack occurring at all prior to it, the Japanese pulled through and surprised America and its soldiers with an intent to destroy the Pacific Fleet. There were two thousand fatalities and one thousand people injured, including sixty-eight civilians. The attack on Pearl Harbor occurred due to many decades of tension between Japan and the United States.
The written work of Eri Hotta entitled Japan 1941: Countdown to Infamy, narrated the succession of events which took place between Japanese officials and leaders which led to the attack of Pearl Harbor. It showed the political unrest and civic instability of Japan that resulted into the bombing. Eventually, such attack was not condoned by the military forces of the United States and they countered the aggression by also bombing Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Thousands of lives were lost and destroyed. Accordingly, the “ Japanese Emperor Hirohito was one of the Japanese officials who expressed reservations about going to war” (Timms).
In both events of Pearl Harbor and 9/11 had a damaging effect on our country. We were terrified and frightened for what could happen next. Pearl Harbor occurred on December 7, 1941 at the Hawaiian territory. 9/11 occurred on September 11, 2001 at New York City. The Pearl Harbor attack was caused from a feud we were having with Japan.
The attack on Pearl Harbor was in fact a terrorist attack. The Imperial Japanese Navy against the US Naval base. This later led to the US to World War II. (Hanson, V.wnd) After 2 years of their conflict the US begins world war II. The war was belligerent.
Pearl Harbor was based on the actual attack on Pearl Harbor so their were many similarities to show what actually happened. In the first scene of the Japanese raid, a low-flying Japanese plane flew over Oahu and it passed over a sandlot baseball field where the pilot warned the children of the attack. This similarity is shown when, “The [Japanese] tail gunner waves at the kids below, warning them to take cover before bombs begin to fall” (Robert Sullivan, Daniel S. Levy). Also the main characters are based on actual men and their actions. The main characters, Rafe McCawley and Danny Walker, are based on George Welch and Kenneth Taylor who were two of the few pilots that were able to become airborne and engage the Japanese attackers.
