Narration

Stage 1 (06:00, 7 December 1941)

The First Japanese fleet (consisting of 6 aircraft carriers, 2 heavy battle cruisers, 1 light battle cruiser, 9 destroyers, 3 submarines and 8 tankers) approached Hawaii from the north. 183 planes led by Mitsuo Fuchida were launched at 6 AM to attack the American base from the north.

Stage 2 (07:55-08:30, 7 December 1941)

The first wave of Japanese planes reached Pearl Harbor in 2 hours and started bombing the American base there. The main targets were ports and airfields. The Americans suffered enormous losses; B-17 bombers from California were also destroyed.

Stage 3 (07:15, 7 December 1941)

170 more bombers were launched from the carriers in the Japanese fleet. The second wave attacked Pearl Harbor from the east. The American Air Force were powerless to stop them, as most of their planes had been destroyed in the first wave of attacks.

Stage 4 (until 09:45, 7 December 1941)

The targets in the second wave were the American ships that had survived the first attack. The Americans suffered catastrophic losses while the Japanese sustained only minor damage. Admiral Nagumo called off the third attack and led his fleet towards Japan.
