75th Anniversary DVD Special.

Our leaders downplayed the threat to our Pacific Fleet while focusing on the Nazi threat in Europe. President Franklin Roosevelt desperately wanted to fight Hitler. Did he conspire with British Prime Minister Winston Churchill to get America into World War II? Even if it meant being attacked by Japan? The United States had many warnings of Japanese aggression, yet, our defenses at Pearl Harbor remained lax up to the very moment of attack. Even after a Navy gunboat was sunk in the Pacific, along with a U.S. destroyer in the Atlantic, the isolationist movement in America remained strong. Find out how American attitudes and politics got in the way of military wisdom, and doomed U.S. forces in Hawaii.

Bonus Features:
  • Stories from Battleship Row - Learn what happened on board eight battleships during the surprise attack at Pearl Harbor, those battleships being: the U.S.S. Arizona, the U.S.S. Tennessee, the U.S.S. West Virginia, the U.S.S. Maryland, the U.S.S. Nevada, the U.S.S. Oklahoma, the U.S.S. Pennsylvania, and the U.S.S. California.
  • Salvaging the Pacific Fleet - Amazingly enough, almost all of the ships sunk or damaged during the attack were raised and repaired. They lived to fight another day and fire their guns against the Japanese.
  • Hollywood's Pearl Harbor - See the movie trailer for one of Hollywood's greatest films about the attack on Pearl Harbor: Tora! Tora! Tora! Then watch another trailer from the Japanese film, I Bombed Pearl Harbor. Finally, experience behind-the-scenes action with The Making of Tora! Tora! Tora!
  • The Pacific War on Film - A trio of wartime documentaries: The Academy Award-winning December 7, 1941, and two more shot on color film: The Battle of Midway and The Fighting Lady (aircraft carrier U.S.S. Yorktown).
  • Attack of the Midget Subs - Find out how five Japanese "midget" submarines launched their own surprise attack on Pearl Harbor. Four of these subs were destroyed by U.S. Naval forces, but the fifth was never found. What became of it?
