Summary
In the aftermath of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, thousands of American servicemen were left dead, nearly two dozen U.S. warships were sunk, and hundreds of airplanes were damaged or destroyed. Had events been different, could America have avoided that attack, or could Japan have won the war with a single stoke? In this classic program, Robert Ballard-discoverer of the sunken Titanic-conducts an underwater investigation, filming the interior of the battleship U.S.S. Arizona and seeking a missing Japanese mini-sub on the ocean floor; World War II historian Stephen Ambrose provides historical insight; and three survivors of the attack give harrowing eyewitness accounts of the events of December 7, 1941, "a date which will live in infamy.
