President Franklin Roosevelt called December 7, 1941, "a date which will live in infamy." On that day, Japanese planes attacked the United States Naval Base at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii Territory. The bombing killed more than 2,300 Americans. It completely destroyed the American battleship U.S.S. Arizona and capsized the U.S.S. Oklahoma. The attack also sank three other ships, damaged many vessels, and demolished 180 aircraft. The attack took the country by surprise, especially the ill-prepared Pearl Harbor base.
