While Rafe is off fighting, suddenly one morning comes the air raid we now know as "Pearl Harbor."Written by

DVD version in Hong Kong is also similar to the one in Japan as described, but:
the December 7th date is NOT changed;
Colonel James Doolittle's (Alec Baldwin) line "Kill as many of those bastards as possible" was changed to "I myself would choose a sweet little target";
a scene showing Japanese women in traditional kimonos and carrying parasols during Doolittle's Raid on Tokyo was NOT omitted.
Army Air Force Pilots who flew for the Eagle Squadron in the Battle of Britain had to resign from the Army. They did not arrive wearing their uniform.
Roosevelt never demonstrated to his cabinet how he struggled to walk again.
In the attack scene, the Japanese planes fly over Spruance class destroyers and Perry class Fast Frigates. These are ships built in the 70's & '80's Near the end of the film, Navy nurses are being awarded the Purple Heart. this is a medal awarded to armed forces personnel wounded in battle. I don't recall seeing any nurse wounded. And no pilot would ever play "chicken" in a military aircraft
