"...a date which will live in infamy..." the inspiring words used by our beloved President, Franklin Delano Roosevelt to describe the sneak attack on the American fleet at Pearl Harbor on the morning of Sunday, December 7, 1941 which began at 0751.The results of this attack hurled this country into a global war which ended eventually with the defeat of the Axis powers in August 1945 and was the costliest war thus far on the face of the earth.

We, at the World War II Stories -- In Their Own Words, have just acquired a series of images that have been loaned through the generosity of the fine folks at the Jackson Barracks Military Library, Louisiana National Guard, New Orleans and especially through the untiring efforts of the library's archivist -- Ms. Sherrie S. Pugh.

Some of these images have been published in books. These are copies of the official Navy photographs of the attack on Pearl Harbor and its aftermath.
