Pearl Harbor

THE REASONING BEHIND THE ATTACK

attack on pearl harbor

        At this point, the Japanese were looking to continue their expansion into the Far East. Pearl Harbor was the Americans most significant location when it came to aircraft and weaponry. This being so, Japan found it made most sense to destroy Pearl Harbor, assuming that the States would leave that region for them to take. 
The Americans saw the Pearl Harbor as untouchable, the perfect spot. They were quickly reminded not to be so over confident when the Japanese proved them wrong.
