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.
