On December 7, 1941, the U.S. naval base on the island of Oahu, Hawaii, was attacked by Japan. In less than 2 hours, the U.S. Pacific Fleet was devastated, and more than 3,500 Americans were either killed or wounded. The incident triggered a mobilization for war. On December 8, the United States declared war against Japan; on December 11, Germany and Italy declared war against the United States.

This small, short document symbolizes and foreshadows the events and world climate that would define the last half of the twentieth century.
