Massive Daylight Raid of American B-17 Bombers over Germany
  A lot of Americans believed that whatever Hitler was doing in Europe and Tojo was doing in the Far East, none of it was any of our business. Let them blow each other to smithereens, we have no worries; not with two great oceans protecting us.

  The tune changed quickly with the surprise attack on America's army and naval forces at Pearl Harbor and Oahu, U.S. Territory of Hawaii, on 07 December 1941. Then, the rush was on to enlist; to show those goose-stepping goons just what it meant to sucker-punch ole Uncle Sam. Out of the farms and cities across America came the folks to comprise the largest, strongest, fastest, smartest, most well equipped and supplied Army this world had ever known. Sixteen million of them! (of a population of just 132 million)

  The sleeping giant was awake and filled with a terrible resolve; "Remember Pearl Harbor!"
