Pearl Harbor Reconsidered
Osher (50+). This course takes a closer look at the events leading up to the attack on Pearl Harbor.
About this course:Seventy-eight years ago, United States military personnel and civilians were “suddenly and deliberately attacked” by Japanese forces at Pearl Harbor, leaving more than 2400 people killed and nearly 1200 people wounded. The consequences of that action continue to reverberate in our nation today. Through historic and recently declassified information, we explore what actually happened in Washington, Tokyo, and Oahu in the months, weeks, and days before the attack. What you discover in this course may shock you and may change your view of history. Videos and historic images accompany the lectures to bring to life this powerful event and generate lively discussions.
