Pearl Habor -December 7, 1941  

Pearl Harbor: December 7, 1941 The surprise was complete. The planes came in two waves; the first hit its target at 7:53 am the second at 8:55. By 9:55 it was all over. By 1:00 pm carriers launched planes 274 heading for Japan. Behind them they left 2,403 dead, 188 destroyed planes and a crippled Pacific Fleet that included 8 destroyed battleships. In one stroke the Japanese action silenced the debate that had divided Americans on the Nazi war in Europe.

This attack has been popularly portrayed by both pictures and movies. You'll find one of the most famous pictures above. Three important movies that depicted this attack were Tora! Tora! Tora!, and From Here to Eternity

 

On D-Day, June 6, 1944, 156,000 American, British and Canadian troops landed on Normandy beaches to begin the liberation of Europe from Nazi occupiers. It was said to be the largest build-up of soldiers in the history of mankind. Robert Capa

American Flag over Iwo Jima 1945

During the bloody Battle for Iwo Jima, U.S. Marines from the 3rd Platoon, E Company, 2nd Battalion, 28th Division take the crest of Mount Suribachi, the island's highest peak and most strategic position, and raise the U.S. flag. Joe Rosenthal, a photographer with the Associated Press, met them along the way and recorded the raising of the second flag along with a Marine still photographer and a motion-picture cameraman.

Three of the six soldiers seen raising the flag in the famous Rosenthal photo, were killed before the conclusion of the Battle for Iwo Jima in late March.
Later, it became the only photograph to win the Pulitzer Prize for Photography. The photo was regarded as one of the most recognizable images of the war & the most reproduced photograph of all times
