    PEARL HARBOUR - 7 December 1941 Japan entered WW2 by attacking the allied forces in the Pacific. The most infamous and deadly was a powerful air strike on the USA’s Pacific Fleet, peacefully anchored in Hawaii's Pearl Harbor on 7 December 1941, the aim was to destroy the Fleet and thus the USA’s ability to influence the War in the Pacific region, the other attacks were meant to serve as preludes to full-scale invasion and occupation. The strategy behind the attacks called for roughly simultaneous attacks on Malaya, Thailand, American-held Guam and Wake, Hong Kong, Singapore, the Philippines, and Hawaii.
