December 8th, 1941, one day after the horrific events of Pearl Harbor, the United States officially declared war on its foes in Eastern Asia, the Japanese. After strategically taking out many American battleships, including the USS Arizona, (the last of "super-dreadnoughts" from Pennsylvania), Japan had set off a series of chain reactions, unfortunately ending with the sanctioned bombing of their homeland (Document A). The struggle for victory lasted four years before the devastating, yet just action, occurred. America took countless strides to suppress Japan and stop their malevolent attacks on US soil, including the Ellwood Oil Field in 1942 and the Bombing of Fort Stevens and the Lookout Air Raids in 1942. To stop the Japanese from causing
Rhetorical Analysis of “Losing the War” by Lee Sandlin War is an incredibly ambiguous phenomenon. In today’s world it feels easy to forget anything but life in relative peace. World War II shook the globe. Now, it has has dwindled to mere ripples in between pages of history textbooks and behind the screens of blockbuster films. In Lee Sandlin’s spectacular essay, “Losing the War,” he explains that in the context of World War II, the “amnesia effect” of time has lead to a bizarre situation; “the next generation starts to wonder whether the whole thing [war] ever actually happened,” (361).
The next day, Nagle called up his friends and scheduled a date to go scope out the wreck. On arrival, Chatterton was the first to splash in and soon realized the wreck was a submarine. After a more careful inspection by him and the other divers, they came to the conclusion that it was a WWII German U-boat. The divers did careful research on all the WWII submarines, but could not find any records of there being a sunken U-boat at those coordinates. After a couple more trips to the wreck, Chatterton was able to retrieve a china plate inscribed with an eagle and swastika, dated 1942.
Most of the predictions are so general that they are hard to prove or disprove. For instance, she predicted, “More people will start eating better to cut down on obesity” and “New values begin to emerge very slowly, but we get back to caring for each other more.” They are vague and very difficult to prove one way or another. Other predictions seem more like opinions such as “I am still worried about train travel” and “We are not going to be overly taxed.” However, when she does give specific predictions, they are often just outright wrong. Examples are “Obama will not be reelected,” “The next president will be a Republican.” For the record, Obama was re-elected in 2012 as a Democrat! She also predicted, “There will be a cure found for M.S.” and “There will be a tsunami in Florida in the fall.” These are glaring examples of her failures.
I thought that all of the Reverends were going to be in their 40’s - 50’s, but the movie makes them look old, like grandpa old. It kinda disappoints me when i 'm reading or book or a play then i go watch the movie and the characters are completely different. Then it just makes me think of the story differently. Many things can play a factor in changing a story by making it into a movie or a play, and The Crucible shows this exactly. Little factors can play a huge role in making a story feel different.
Since Beowulf is facing three different monsters, there is not only the story’s significant journey, but also multiple inside it. There are three mini-hero journeys Beowulf’s main journey. In the beginning, Beowulf follows his first journey with Grendel. The initial call to adventure is with the news of Grendel. One piece of evidence to support this is: “‘Then news of Grendel, / hard to ignore, reached me at home: / sailors brought stories of the plight you suffer / in this legendary hall… So every elder and experienced councilman/ among my people supported my resolve / to come here to you’” (Heaney 409-417).
When the atrocities of world war two are brought up, many people think of the biggest travesties the war caused, like the holocaust and Pearl Harbor. They think of the Jews and Americans slaughtered with almost ungodly techniques, and the countries that committed these war crimes. But one such case never comes to the mind of the average Joe, Unit 731 and its founder, Shiro Ishii. Ishii was born into a rich family on June 25th, 1892 in the Kamo district, Chibe prefecture, and southeast of Tokyo (Byrd 15). Shiro joined the military as soon as possible due to his great love for Japan and the emperor (Ammentorp).
As the context of the clip flutters in things begin to seem more understandable in the sense that this course of action was necessary. On December 8th of 1941, Franklin D. Roosevelt produced a declaration of war speech entitled “Day of Infamy Speech” in response to the bombing of military bases in Pearl Harbor the day before. Roosevelt detailed that the premeditated Japanese strike came out of nowhere and were especially dishonorable as the United States was at peace with that nation. This instance set the stage for many lives to be lost as the land of the rising sun attempted to extend its horizons all across the Earth. In his speech, Roosevelt stated in no uncertain terms that Hostilities exist and that it becomes necessary to take action to make it very certain that this form of treachery shall never again endanger us.
President Roosevelt’s Pearl Harbor Address “A date that will live in infamy”. This sentence is forever ingrained in the American history. The bombing of Pearl Harbor the 7th December is an event that will never be forgotten and the speech by Franklin Delano Roosevelt (FDR) held the day afterward is just as significant. The speech after the attack is one of the most recognizable and significant speeches in newer history. The speech brought America into World War II, even though they were heavily weakened by The Great Depression and a loss of troops during World War I.
With the Great Depression in full swing, only the mobilization for war in the early 1940s brought the United States out of its economic despair. The attack on Pearl Harbor was a surprise military strike conducted by the Imperial Japanese Navy against the United States naval base at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, on the morning of December 7, 1941. The attack led to the United States ' entry into World War II and served as a major spark of hope for Blacks seeking better employment and a chance for equality. When President Franklin D. Roosevelt issued his urgent call to arms following the Pearl Harbor disaster on December 7, 1941, Blacks, like all other Americans, responded to the call. America was outraged at the sneak attack on the American naval base.
Williams’ first response was that he needed to fight.

Hofmann and his fellow sailors found themselves united with the remainder of marines from the Fourth Marine Regiment. He explains his role and the heroism of a group of airmen, sailors, and marines in defeating an attempt of a Japanese battalion to outmaneuver I Corps. Hofmann makes a predictive observation after the Battle of the Points. Hofmann writes that the war in the Pacific would be extremely long and bloody war for both sides. Japanese pressure ultimately forced Hofmann and his fellow sailors to Cebu, where they would aid in backup blockade runners delivering support to Corregidor.
In the article “Pearl Harbor” it talks about the USS Arizona memorial widely known as a Pearl harbor memorial.
