An eyewitness account of the Pearl Harbor attack as relayed to family members in a letter home a few weeks after the assault:

"You said you wanted to know all about what happened. Some things are a little hazy in my mind but I'll tell you all that I can remember."
"The noise was like ten thousand factories gone nuts....Quicker than I can tell you, a bomb blows up the barracks with the gang in it, a ship explodes in front of me, a hangar goes up in flames, and so on and so forth."
"Slim shouted to me and we started running to our gun post...We duck and we dodge and fall flat on our faces when they came over low to machine-gun us. Slim didn't. He was such a good guy."

The very next day President Roosevelt stood before the microphones in the well of the U.S. Capitol and asked Congress to declare war against Japan; CLICK HERE to hear about the reactions of the American public during his broadcast...
