World War II Timeline December 7, 1941 Attack on Pearl Harbor The Japanese bomb Pearl Harbor killing several thousand Americans and causing America to retaliate with the nuclear bombs. During that time, the Japanese also attacked several other countries to include: Philippines, Wake Island, Guam, Malaya, Thailand, Shanghai and Midway. This event is significant to the Americans because this was an unprovoked attack on American soil, which resulted in several thousand American deaths. This also an event that led America to later bomb Iwo Jima with nuclear warfare. April 10, 1942 Bataan Death March The Bataan Death March is known because that is the day that 76,000 POWs’, to include 12,000 Americans, were forced to march 60 miles to a new location under a blazing sun without food or water. This resulted in more than 5,000 American POWs’ deaths. This event should America how brutal the enemy can be. In my opinion, this event also shows that we, as Americans and its Allies, that we can show compassion, even for our enemies. August 8/9, 1942
