Pearl harbor was the beginning of World War II. For the US, it was an unexpected attack. In the early morning, the Japanese target was the American naval base. The attack was extremely effective and the carnage was unbelievable. It was said that only two aircraft made it off the ground. Following the Pearl Harbor battle, we counter attacked with the Doolittle raid.The counter attack was nothing compared to their attack of over 300 Japanese zeros and nates,compared to the counter of around 15 to 20 planes, but non the less the attack was a success.
