Remembering Pearl Harbor. The Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor 80 years ago has gone on to “live in infamy,” just as Franklin Roosevelt promised in his speech to Congress, calling for a declaration of war. The attack is also remembered as the epitome of strategic surprise, an ”unprovoked and dastardly attack” against an unwitting victim. This understanding of Japan’s action was enormously important to the conduct of the war Roosevelt was demanding. This lecture will consider how far it is justified by the historical record that has emerged since Japan’s defeat.
