Experience the dramatic attack on Pearl Harbor with this colourful, fact-packed app. An animated map complete with audio commentary lets you see the battle develop stage by stage; a narrated history and gallery give you the full background; while the Pearl Harbor quiz tests out your battle knowledge.
One of the most important moments in the history of World War II, the attack on Pearl Harbor brought the United States of America into the war against both Germany and Japan. The Japanese attackers failed to sink any US Navy carriers, and thereby missed the opportunity to cripple the US Navy, although they did cause a heavy loss of life and several ships were sunk.
