A declaration of war was printed on the front page of Japan's newspapers in the evening edition of December 8 late December 7 in the U.
For decades, conventional wisdom held that Japan attacked without first formally breaking diplomatic relations only because of accidents and bumbling that delayed the delivery of a document hinting at war to Washington.
In any event, even if the Japanese had decoded and delivered the Part Message before the beginning of the attack, it would not have constituted either a formal break of diplomatic relations or a declaration of war.
Thus the earnest hope of the Japanese Government to adjust Japanese-American relations and to preserve and promote the peace of the Pacific through cooperation with the American Government has finally been lost.
The Japanese Government regrets to have to notify hereby the American Government that in view of the attitude of the American Government it cannot but consider that it is impossible to reach an agreement through further negotiations.
The first attack wave of planes was launched north of Oahu, led by Commander Mitsuo Fuchida. As the first wave approached Oahu, it was detected by the U.
Army SCR radar at Opana Point near the island's northern tip. This post had been in training mode for months, but was not yet operational.
Tyler , a newly assigned officer at the thinly manned Intercept Center, presumed it was the scheduled arrival of six B bombers from California.
The Japanese planes were approaching from a direction very close only a few degrees difference to the bombers,  and while the operators had never seen a formation as large on radar, they neglected to tell Tyler of its size.
As the first wave planes approached Oahu, they encountered and shot down several U. At least one of these radioed a somewhat incoherent warning.
Other warnings from ships off the harbor entrance were still being processed or awaiting confirmation when the attacking planes began bombing and strafing.
Nevertheless, it is not clear any warnings would have had much effect even if they had been interpreted correctly and much more promptly. The results the Japanese achieved in the Philippines were essentially the same as at Pearl Harbor, though MacArthur had almost nine hours warning that the Japanese had already attacked Pearl Harbor.
December 8 Japanese Standard Time , as kept by ships of the Kido Butai ,  [nb 4] with the attack on Kaneohe.
A total of  Japanese planes in two waves reached Oahu. Slow, vulnerable torpedo bombers led the first wave, exploiting the first moments of surprise to attack the most important ships present the battleships , while dive bombers attacked U.
Army Air Forces fighter base. The planes in the second wave attacked the Army Air Forces' Bellows Field near Kaneohe on the windward side of the island and Ford Island.
The only aerial opposition came from a handful of P Hawks , P Warhawks , and some SBD Dauntless dive bombers from the carrier Enterprise.
At least two of those bombs broke up on impact, another detonated before penetrating an unarmored deck, and one was a dud. Thirteen of the forty torpedoes hit battleships, and four torpedoes hit other ships.
The famous message, "Air raid Pearl Harbor. This is not drill. The defenders were very unprepared. Commander F. The second planned wave consisted of planes: 54 B5Ns, 81 D3As, and 36 A6Ms, commanded by Lieutenant-Commander Shigekazu Shimazaki.
The second wave was divided into three groups. The separate sections arrived at the attack point almost simultaneously from several directions.
Ninety minutes after it began, the attack was over. In total, 2, Americans were killed, and 1, were wounded. Among the notable civilian casualties were nine Honolulu Fire Department HFD firefighters who responded to Hickam Field during the bombing in Honolulu, becoming the only fire department members on American soil to be attacked by a foreign power in history.
Fireman Harry Tuck Lee Pang of Engine 6 was killed near the hangars by machine gun fire from a Japanese plane. Captains Thomas Macy and John Carreira of Engine 4 and Engine 1 respectively died while battling flames inside the hangar after a Japanese bomb crashed through the roof.
An additional six firefighters were wounded from Japanese shrapnel. The wounded later received Purple Hearts originally reserved for service members wounded by enemy action while partaking in armed conflicts for their peacetime heroism that day on June 13, ; the three firefighters killed did not receive theirs until on December 7, , at the 43rd anniversary of the attack.
This made the nine men the only non-military firefighters to receive such award in U. Already damaged by a torpedo and on fire amidships, Nevada attempted to exit the harbor.
She was deliberately beached to avoid blocking the harbor entrance. California was hit by two bombs and two torpedoes.
The crew might have kept her afloat, but were ordered to abandon ship just as they were raising power for the pumps.
Burning oil from Arizona and West Virginia drifted down on her and probably made the situation look worse than it was. The disarmed target ship Utah was holed twice by torpedoes.
West Virginia was hit by seven torpedoes, the seventh tearing away her rudder. Oklahoma was hit by four torpedoes, the last two above her belt armor , which caused her to capsize.
Maryland was hit by two of the converted 16" shells, but neither caused serious damage. Although the Japanese concentrated on battleships the largest vessels present , they did not ignore other targets.
The light cruiser Helena was torpedoed, and the concussion from the blast capsized the neighboring minelayer Oglala. Two destroyers in dry dock , Cassin and Downes , were destroyed when bombs penetrated their fuel bunkers.
The leaking fuel caught fire; flooding the dry dock in an effort to fight fire made the burning oil rise, and both were burned out. Cassin slipped from her keel blocks and rolled against Downes.
The light cruiser Raleigh was holed by a torpedo. The light cruiser Honolulu was damaged but remained in service. The repair vessel Vestal , moored alongside Arizona , was heavily damaged and beached.
The seaplane tender Curtiss was also damaged. The destroyer Shaw was badly damaged when two bombs penetrated her forward magazine.
Of the American aircraft in Hawaii, were destroyed and damaged, of them on the ground. Eight Army Air Forces pilots managed to get airborne during the attack,  and six were credited with downing at least one Japanese aircraft during the attack: 1st Lt.
Lewis M. Sanders, 2nd Lt. Philip M. Rasmussen , 2nd Lt. Kenneth M. Taylor , 2nd Lt. George S. Welch , 2nd Lt. Harry W.
Brown , and 2nd Lt. Gordon H. Sterling Jr. Friendly fire brought down some U. At the time of the attack, nine civilian aircraft were flying in the vicinity of Pearl Harbor.
Of these, three were shot down. Fifty-five Japanese airmen and nine submariners were killed in the attack, and one, Kazuo Sakamaki , was captured. Of Japan's  available planes, took part in the raid in which 29 were lost; nine in the first wave three fighters, one dive bomber, and five torpedo bombers and 20 in the second wave six fighters and 14 dive bombers  [nb 17] with another 74 damaged by antiaircraft fire from the ground.
Several Japanese junior officers including Fuchida and Genda urged Nagumo to carry out a third strike in order to destroy as much of Pearl Harbor's fuel and torpedo [nb 18] storage, maintenance, and dry dock facilities as possible.
Pacific Fleet far more seriously than the loss of its battleships. Nimitz , later Commander in Chief of the Pacific Fleet, "it would have prolonged the war another two years".
At a conference aboard his flagship the following morning, Yamamoto supported Nagumo's withdrawal without launching a third wave.
Yamamoto later regretted Nagumo's decision to withdraw and categorically stated it had been a great mistake not to order a third strike.
Twenty-one ships were damaged or lost in the attack, of which all but three were repaired and returned to service. After a systematic search for survivors, Captain Homer N.
Wallin was ordered to lead a formal salvage operation. Around Pearl Harbor, divers from the Navy shore and tenders , the Pearl Harbor Naval Shipyard , and civilian contractors Pacific Bridge Company and others began work on the ships that could be refloated.
They patched holes, cleared debris, and pumped water out of ships. Navy divers worked inside the damaged ships.
Within six months, five battleships and two cruisers were patched or refloated so they could be sent to shipyards in Pearl Harbor and on the mainland for extensive repair.
Intensive salvage operations continued for another year, a total of some 20, man-hours under water. Oklahoma , while successfully raised, was never repaired and capsized while under tow to the mainland in When feasible, armament and equipment was removed from vessels too damaged to repair and put to use aboard other craft.
Hawaiian time : "The Japanese have attacked Pearl Harbor from the air and all naval and military activities on the island of Oahu, principal American base in the Hawaiian islands.
Eastern time. John Charles Daly read the initial report, then switched to London, where Robert Trout ad-libbed on the possible London reaction.
Eastern time and lasted only 21 seconds. Unlike the later practice with major news stories, there were only brief interruptions of scheduled commercial programming.
A contemporaneous newspaper report compared the attack to the Battle of Port Arthur in which the Imperial Japanese Navy attacked the Imperial Russian Navy, triggering the Russo-Japanese War , 37 years prior.
In the wake of the attack, 15 Medals of Honor , 51 Navy Crosses , 53 Silver Stars , four Navy and Marine Corps Medals , one Distinguished Flying Cross , four Distinguished Service Crosses , one Distinguished Service Medal , and three Bronze Star Medals were awarded to the American servicemen who distinguished themselves in combat at Pearl Harbor.
The day after the attack, Roosevelt delivered his famous Infamy Speech to a Joint Session of Congress , calling for a formal declaration of war on the Empire of Japan.
Congress obliged his request less than an hour later. On December 11, Germany and Italy declared war on the United States, even though the Tripartite Pact did not require it.
The United Kingdom had already been at war with Germany since September and with Italy since June , and British Prime Minister Winston Churchill 's had promised to declare war "within the hour" of a Japanese attack on the United States.
As a result, the UK declared war on Japan nine hours before the U. The attack was an initial shock to all the Allies in the Pacific Theater.
Further losses compounded the alarming setback. Japan attacked the Philippines hours later because of the time difference, it was December 8 in the Philippines.
Only three days after the attack on Pearl Harbor, the battleships Prince of Wales and Repulse were sunk off the coast of Malaya, causing Churchill later to recollect "In all the war I never received a more direct shock.
As I turned and twisted in bed the full horror of the news sank in upon me. There were no British or American capital ships in the Indian Ocean or the Pacific except the American survivors of Pearl Harbor who were hastening back to California.
Over this vast expanse of waters Japan was supreme and we everywhere were weak and naked. Throughout the war, Pearl Harbor was frequently used in American propaganda.
One further consequence of the attack on Pearl Harbor and its aftermath notably the Niihau incident was that Japanese-American residents and citizens were relocated to nearby Japanese-American internment camps.
Within hours of the attack, hundreds of Japanese-American leaders were rounded up and taken to high-security camps such as Sand Island at the mouth of Honolulu harbor and Kilauea Military Camp on the island of Hawaii.
The attack also had international consequences. The Canadian province of British Columbia , bordering the Pacific Ocean, had long had a large population of Japanese immigrants and their Japanese-Canadian descendants.
Pre-war tensions were exacerbated by the Pearl Harbor attack, leading to a reaction from the Government of Canada. On February 24, , Order-in-Council P.
On March 4, regulations under the Act were adopted to evacuate Japanese-Canadians. Japanese planners of the Pearl Harbor attack had determined that some means were required for rescuing fliers whose aircraft were damaged too badly to return to the carriers.
The island of Niihau , only 30 minutes flying time from Pearl Harbor, was designated as the rescue point. The Zero flown by Petty Officer Shigenori Nishikaichi of Hiryu was damaged in the attack on Wheeler, so he flew to the rescue point.
The aircraft was further damaged on landing. Nishikaichi was helped from the wreckage by one of the native Hawaiians, who, aware of the tension between the United States and Japan, took the pilot's pistol, maps, codes, and other documents.
The island's residents had no telephones or radios and were completely unaware of the attack on Pearl Harbor. Nishikaichi enlisted the support of three Japanese-American residents in an attempt to recover the documents.
During the ensuing struggles, Nishikaichi was killed, and a Hawaiian civilian was wounded; one collaborator committed suicide, and his wife and the third collaborator were sent to prison.
The ease with which the local ethnic Japanese residents had apparently gone to Nishikaichi's assistance was a source of concern for many and tended to support those who believed that local Japanese could not be trusted.
Admiral Hara Tadaichi summed up the Japanese result by saying, "We won a great tactical victory at Pearl Harbor and thereby lost the war.
While the attack accomplished its intended objective, it turned out to be largely unnecessary. Unbeknownst to Yamamoto, who conceived the original plan, the U.
Navy had decided as far back as to abandon 'charging' across the Pacific towards the Philippines in response to an outbreak of war in keeping with the evolution of Plan Orange.
Fortunately for the United States, the American aircraft carriers were untouched; otherwise the Pacific Fleet's ability to conduct offensive operations would have been crippled for a year or more given no diversions from the Atlantic Fleet.
As it was, the elimination of the battleships left the U. Navy with no choice but to rely on its aircraft carriers and submarines—the very weapons with which the U.
Navy halted and eventually reversed the Japanese advance. While six of the eight battleships were repaired and returned to service, their relatively low speed and high fuel consumption limited their deployment, and they served mainly in shore bombardment roles their only major action being the Battle of Surigao Strait in October A major flaw of Japanese strategic thinking was a belief that the ultimate Pacific battle would be fought by battleships, in keeping with the doctrine of Captain Alfred Thayer Mahan.
As a result, Yamamoto and his successors hoarded battleships for a "decisive battle" that never happened. The Japanese confidence in their ability to win a quick victory meant that they neglected Pearl Harbor's navy repair yards, oil tank farms, submarine base, and old headquarters building.
The survival of the repair shops and fuel depots allowed Pearl Harbor to maintain logistical support to the U. Navy's operations,   such as the Doolittle Raid and the Battles of Coral Sea and Midway.
It was submarines that immobilized the Imperial Japanese Navy's heavy ships and brought Japan's economy to a virtual standstill by crippling the importation of oil and raw materials: by the end of , the amount of raw materials brought in was cut in half, "to a disastrous ten million tons", while oil "was almost completely stopped".
Ever since the Japanese attack, there has been debate as to how and why the United States had been caught unaware, and how much and when American officials knew of Japanese plans and related topics.
As early as , Chief of U. Air Service Mason Patrick displayed a concern for military vulnerabilities in the Pacific, having sent Gen.
Billy Mitchell on a survey of the Pacific and the East. Patrick called Mitchell's subsequent report, which identified vulnerabilities in Hawaii, a "theoretical treatise on employment of airpower in the Pacific, which, in all probability undoubtedly will be of extreme value some 10 or 15 years hence".
At least two naval war games, one in and another in , proved that Pearl was vulnerable to such an attack. Admiral James Richardson was removed from command shortly after protesting President Roosevelt's decision to move the bulk of the Pacific fleet to Pearl Harbor.
Several writers, including decorated World War II veteran and journalist Robert Stinnett , author of Day of Deceit , and former United States Rear Admiral Robert Alfred Theobald , author of The Final Secret of Pearl Harbor: The Washington Background of the Pearl Harbor Attack , have argued that various parties high in the U.
However, this conspiracy theory is rejected by mainstream historians. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Surprise attack by the Japanese Navy on the U.

There is, however, no doubt that they did know, as did the Japanese. Mitsuo Fuchida about his observations. Fuchida led the Japanese attack on December 7, Pearl Harbor deep averages 42 feet.
But the Japanese borrowed an idea from the British carrier-based torpedo raid on the Italian naval base of Taranto.
They fashioned auxiliary wooden tail fins to keep the torpedoes horizontal, so they would dive to only 35 feet, and they added a breakaway "nosecone" of soft wood to cushion the impact with the surface of the water.
Even after the war, however, he received recriminating correspondence from those who despised him for not sacrificing his own life.

Blair, passim. The harbor there was blocked by scuttled Italian and German ships, which prevented British use of the port.
Militarists were steadily gaining in influence in the Tokyo government; they bitterly resented U. They saw in the German invasion of the Soviet Union an unrivaled opportunity to pursue a policy of aggression in the Far East without danger of an attack upon their rear by the forces of the Red Army.
Nonetheless, negotiations looking to find some kind of understanding between the United States and Japan took place through the autumn of , and not until near the end of November did it become clear that no agreement was possible.

Commanders were instructed that the fleet might be recalled, however, in case of a favourable outcome of the negotiations in Washington, D.
On November 26, Vice Adm. Nagumo Chuichi led a fleet including 6 aircraft carriers , 2 battleships , 3 cruisers , and 11 destroyers to a point some miles km north of Hawaii.
From there about planes in total were launched. The U. Pacific Fleet had been stationed at Pearl Harbor since April In addition to nearly naval vessels, including 8 battleships, there were substantial military and air forces.
As the tension mounted, Adm. Husband E. Kimmel and Lieut. Walter C. Short , who shared command at Pearl Harbor, were warned of the possibility of war, specifically on October 16 and again on November 24 and In response to these warnings, the measures taken by the army and navy commanders were, as the event proved, far from adequate.
Short ordered an alert against sabotage and concentrated most of his fighter planes at the base on Wheeler Field in an effort to prevent damage to them.
He also gave orders to operate five of the mobile radar sets that had been set up in the island from am to am , considered to be the most dangerous period.
Radar training, however, was in a far-from-advanced stage. Kimmel, despite the fact that his intelligence had not been able to locate substantial elements in the Japanese fleet—especially the first-line ships in carrier divisions 1 and 2—did not expand his reconnaissance activities to the northwest, the logical point for an attack.
He moored the entire fleet save that part which was at sea in the harbour and permitted a part of his personnel to go on shore leave.
Neither of these officers suspected that the base at Pearl Harbor would itself be subjected to attack. Nor, for that matter, is there any indication that their superiors in Washington were in any way conscious of the approaching danger.
In the 10 days between the war warning of November 27 and the Japanese attack itself, no additional action was taken by Washington.
Early on Sunday morning, December 7, Washington learned that the Japanese ambassadors had been instructed to ask for an interview with the secretary of state at pm am Pearl Harbor time.
