Film of the Day: TORA TORA TORA: THE TRUE STORY OF PEARL HARBOR
Today, December 7, 2016, marks the 75th anniversary of the bombing of Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941. "A date," as President Franklin Roosevelt called it, "which will live in infamy." The attack resulted in the death of 2,400 persons, and the destruction of 300 aircraft and eighteen ships. Today, we remember all those killed, including civilians, and all those who survived with physical and emotional scars.
The documentary below, titled 'Tora Tora Tora: The True Story of Pearl Harbor', is a production of the History Channel from 2000. The 90-minute film gives a thorough account of the events leading up to the attack, the attack itself, and the aftermath.
