Here is my art on the subject: http://fineartamerica.com/featured/day-of-infamy-dale-jackson.html
Seventy four years ago on December 7th, was the event of the devastating surprise attack on Pearl Harbor by Imperial Japanese Navy against the United States naval base at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, on the morning of December 7, 1941. The attack was intended as a preventive action in order to keep the U.S. Pacific Fleet from interfering with military actions the Empire of Japan was planning in Southeast Asia against overseas territories of the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, and the United States. The attack came as a profound shock to the American people and led directly to the American entry into World War II in both the Pacific and European theaters. The following day, the United States declared war on Japan. President Franklin D. Roosevelt proclaimed December 7, 1941, "a date which will live in infamy." Pictured below is my painting showing a small boat rescuing a seaman from the USS West Virginia - based on one of the photographs of the event.
