On December 7, 1941, the Japanese Empire stunned the world with a surprise attack on the U.S. naval base at Pearl Harbor. Commemorating this momentous historical event that brought the United States into World War II, LIFE revisits the infamous scene in beautifully illustrated photographs: the years leading up to 1941, Lindbergh's antiwar rallies, the desperate scene in Europe and at Winston Churchill's 10 Downing Street, and the Japanese admiral who realized he awoke a sleeping giant. Highlights include "The Call to Action," LIFE's actual pages in the 10 weeks after the attack, as America mobilized and went to war, and a concluding chapter that covers today's modern tensions in the waters of the Far East.
