Excellent review of the history behind Pearl Harbor...
In this documentary short, packaged on the Special Edition DVD of "Tora! Tora! Tora!", military historians relate the events and reasons leading up to Japan's surprise attack on December 7 1941. They also describe the damage to various ships in the harbor, and the enduring influence of the attack on America's resolve to fight for total victory. The "revisionist" historical/conspiracy position (that Roosevelt knew of the attack beforehand and kept silent in order to drag America into World War II), is brought up and then convincingly (in my opinion) debunked. I thoroughly enjoyed this documentary and recommend it as a worthwhile complement to the "Tora! Tora! Tora!" film.
