In December of 1941, the code phrase "Tora, Tora, Tora" ("tiger" in Japanese) unleashed one of history's most devastating surprise attacks. But the raid on Pearl Harbor also awakened the "sleeping giant" of the American military, ultimately sealing Japan's fate and deciding the outcome of the most destructive war in history.
Now, go beyond the wartime headlines for a revealing, in-depth exploration of the notorious first strike as experienced by both the Japanese attackers and U.S. forces on the ground. Witness as never before the prelude, onslaught and aftermath of the assault, from Japanese Zero pilots recalling the textbook-perfect execution of their plan, to American servicemen fighting to survive the nightmarish inferno on the ground. With gripping archival combat footage, deeply moving personal accounts and richly detailed historical analysis, PEARL HARBOR is an unprecedented journey back in time to the "day of infamy."

Tora, Tora, Tora!: The Real Story of Pearl Harbor
