75 Years Later, FDR's Pearl Harbor "Infamy" Speech Still Holds its Power

Wednesday, Dec. 7, marks the 75th anniversary of Japan's brutal attack on Pearl Harbor.

That assault killed more than 2,000 U.S. soldiers - with another 1,000+ injured - and destroyed nearly 20 U.S. Navy vessels and 300 military airplanes.

The Japanese force that descended on Honolulu included 33 ships, including six aircraft carriers carrying more than 400 planes; two battleships; two heavy cruisers; one light cruiser; nine destroyers; 28 submarines; and eight oil tankers to refuel the fleet. All were under the command of Vice Adm. Chuichi Nagumo.
