December 7th – National Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day


In remembrance of Pearl Harbor Day, I am watching Tora! Tora! Tora! It’s an interesting movie that is telling the story from both sides of the battle.

I am finding it interesting to see how many decisions made perfect sense in the moment, but proved crucial in the attack. For example, one commander thought that all the airplanes should be stored together in the center of the airport so nobody could sneak in and sabotage them. This meant that all airplanes could be damaged by just one bomb. Crazy.

I wrote a paper when I was in college about how President Roosevelt provoked the Japanese to war and needed them to attack first because he needed/wanted to join the war to fight Germany. My argument was that he was right in doing this. I try to make things interesting for my teachers.

I recommend this movie. The acting isn’t great, but it’s educational.

What’s Tomorrow?
