One of the most tragic days in history, December 7 1941. A day that will live in infamy forever. A suprise attack that sank 8 United States battle ships, 3 destroyers, 3 cruisers, minelayer, and an anti-aircraft training ship. The Jappanese also took out 188 fighter palnes. 2402 American lives were lost, and 1282 Americans were injured. The Jappanese lost 33 lives and 5 injured. This made America so outraged that they declared war on Japan within a day. They also ignored the isolationism policy. This walked America right in to the horid World War Two.
