December 8th 1941 - US declares war on Japan


December 8th 1941: A nation in shock. Probably nobody had expected the surprise attack by the Japanese air force on the naval base at Pearl Harbor on the previous day. The mood of the predominantly pacifist and isolationist American population is about to change. The reaction of U.S. President Franklyn D. Roosevelt is accordingly clear and resolute: The USA declares war on Japan and enters the battle against the fascist Axis powers of Germany, Italy and Japan. Hitlers war in Europe has finally become a 2nd World War and the Pacific now becomes the territory of high casualty battles during which the Japanese surrender occupied territories to the U.S troops only foot by foot island to island blood for blood. In the end Roosevelt's successor Harry S. Truman makes a momentous decision in order to end the war against Japan.
