12 Sentence Paragraph explanation

The Attack on Pearl Harbor was a very deadly attack by the Japanese Americans. First let me say that the United States had every right to get involved because the Japanese was trying to set up and “plan” to destroy the whole united states territory. It all started when Japan felt as if the United States was trying to intervene with the Chinese and sending them all these weapons and goods. The United States stopped all goods and raw material from entering Japan. After that Japan decided to take matters in their own hand. They blew up the U.S submarines and made sure that China wasn’t getting anything. When they finally started attacking the U.S it was so unexpected. There was bombs dropping every hour constantly, Japan didn’t give up with out a fight. Many people lost their lives during this time it was about 2,400 people dead. Planes were damaged and only a few was still in good condition. The Attack left the town so damage.

Attack on Pearl Harbor

Attack on Pearl Harbor | Japanese Attack on Pearl Harbor | Scoop.it
On the morning of December 7, 1941, the Japanese launched a surprise air attack on the U.S. Naval Base at Pearl Harbor.
Nicole Jones's insight:

This website was basically giving me information on how many people died during each bombing. i was pretty surprised with the japanese because they were VERY angry with the united states because of the goods they were shipping into china. This website went in to more detail about the plan that the japanese had to attack the united states, which i would say is VERY risky. they were led by Vice Admiral Chuichi Nagumo. the war started on December 7, 1941.

12 sentence Paragraph


Pearl Harbor is a very important event in history. I say this because left a huge affect on the United States because of how deadly and damaging it was. There are still planes still flying today from 72 years ago. People are buying them. There was plane that was damaged and unable to fly but it was repaired and fixed and in 2004.

People today still go to the place where the attack took place. Pearl Harbor had citizens in the united states shocked and scared because of all the damages that it caused. There is plenty of article out on the web that describes how deadly, and dangerous the United States was during this time. I read a document from a man that was a victim in pearl harbor he was just basically describing everything that took place and how people were left dead. Businesses were destroyed so many people were jobless

This article is about an ederly man who is talking about the memories of Pearl Harbor. It is now 72 years after pearl harbor and he said it feels like yesterday when it happened. He was always ready prepared for war. He goes around to schools to speak about the Attack on pearl Harbor. this quote really stuck to me " it was a hard day for me, because i know how WE suffered and how so many were killed, they're real heroes, and should never be forgotten." that stuck out to me because he called them heros because thats what they are they went down for there country and what they believed in.
