Melissa Wilkerson AMH1051 4/7/08 Who, What, When, Where and Why: Pearl Harbor In the beginning of World War II, America was divided. Part of the country wanted to stay neutral, the other wanted to fight. But, everyone was sure that America needed to do something about Japan. So, in July of 1941, the United States decided to take action. They froze all of Japans assets that were tied to the United States. Because of this, the United States knew the Japanese were going to strike back they just did not know when or how. In November of 1941 Americans had cracked the Japanese code. This gave Americans information about what Japan was thinking about in terms of the war. The Japanese had concocted two plans. One plan had more of a peace message and the other message had what they really wanted. The Americans also found out that Japan was going to be done talking by November 29 th , 1941. The United States was not taken aback with what was in the messages. On November 7, 1941 the first plan was rejected.
