Naval Legends: Pearl Harbor

The new episode by World of Warships series Naval Legends provides a brief account of the surprise attack staged by Japanese carrier-borne aircraft on Pearl Harbor.

On the morning of December 7, 1941 — a Sunday — Japanese aircraft took off from six aircraft carriers and attacked the American fleet stationed at Hawaii. The Imperial Japanese Navy intended to neutralize the U.S. naval forces in the Pacific in order to subsequently capture Southeast Asia, a region that's rich in natural resources.

The surprise attack allowed Japan to seize the initiative in the Pacific theater of operations for a period of half a year. Over the course of several months, the events set in motion by the Japanese blitzkrieg resulted in the capture of Hong Kong, Malaya, Burma, the Dutch East Indies, Brunei, and the Philippines. But was it really a great win?

How successful was the attack on Pearl Harbor, and what were its true consequences? To find out, watch the new episode!
