DAMAGED WARSHIPS. The U.S. destroyers Dowries, left, and Cassin, right,
and the battleship Pennsylvania, in background, shortly after the attack on Pearl
Harbor. Of the eight battleships hit, the Arizona was a total loss; the Oklahoma
was never repaired; the California, Nevada, West Virginia, Pennsylvania,
Maryland, and Tennessee were repaired and returned to service. The slight depth
of Pearl Harbor made possible the raising and ref itting of these ships.

THE DESTROYER USS SHAW EXPLODING during the attack on Pearl Harbor,
7 December. The first attack on the U.S. warships anchored in the harbor was
delivered at 0758. By 0945 all the Japanese aircraft had left Oahu and returned
to their carriers. The U.S. Pacific Fleet suffered a major disaster during the
attack which lasted one hour and fifty minutes. Sunk or damaged during the
attack were the destroyers Shaw, Cassin, and Dowries; the mine layer Oglala;
the target ship Utah; and a large floating drydock. Also hit were the light cruisers
Helena, Honolulu, and Raleigh; the seaplane tender Curtis; and the repair
ship Vestal.

Oahu, in the Hawaiian Islands. Early in December 1941 all the U.S. troops,
including antiaircraft batteries, were returned to their stations from field maneuvers
to await the signal for riot duty. Trouble was expected, and while Japanese
diplomats in Washington talked peace, their Pearl Harbor Striking Force was
moving eastward toward Hawaii. During this movement the fleet maintained
radio silence and was not detected as it approached the islands. (.50-caliber antiaircraft
machine gun, water-cooled, flexible.)

COAST ARTILLERY BATTERY training in Hawaii. Man at left is placing a round
in the manual fuze setter of a 3-inch antiaircraft gun M1917M2. A plan for the
defense of the Hawaiian Islands had been set up and joint maneuvers (land, air,
and naval forces) were held periodically to test the various security measures.
