Pearl Harbor: a Day That Will Live in Infamy


Location: Meeting Room A/B, 95th Street Library, Naperville, IL 60565
Start Date/Time: December 04, 2016 - 7 p.m.
End Date/Time: December 04, 2016 – 8:30 p.m.

On December 7, 1941, the United States was suddenly and deliberately surprise attacked by Japanese Naval and Air Forces and then thrust from isolationism into World War II. Historian Jim Gibbons will discuss the beginnings of the storms of war that led to the predawn attack. He also will talk about how the government in Washington and the people of the United States were wooed to vulnerability and then struck hard by the Empire of Japan. Suffering a devastating naval loss in a little over one hour and 50 minutes, Gibbons will show how the people of the United States, as former president Franklin Delano Roosevelt stated, “In their righteous might [did] succeed to absolute victory!”
