HIST 370 Notes Week 9 Pearl Harbor amp Dutch Harbor in World War II A Pearl Harbor 7 December 1941 The original Japanese battle strategy for attacking Pearl Harbor devised by Marshal Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto was meant to be much more devastating than the situation that was actually carried out by Japan s Imperial Naval Air Force Primarily the Navy was supposed to send a second wave of fighters to the Harbor to take out US submarines and fuel depots after its first wave had taken out the aircraft carriers and battlecruisers where in fact the second wave was not even sent out and the rst wave was unable to hit most of the US Navy s aircraft carriers because most of the carriers had already left the harbor by the time the attack began The events of Pearl Harbor are memorialized in how the overwhelming majority of American students come to understand the significance of it both in the short term with bringing the United States into the war and in the longterm in how being in the war in Europe caused a drastic shift in the geopolitical role that the United States would play in the many decades to come B Dutch Harbor 34 June 1942 Only a few months following the attack on Pearl Harbor the Japanese Navy sent two aircraft carriers north to launch their invasion of Alaska the subsequent occupation of various Aleutian Islands of Alaska would last over a year C Comparing Education of Pearl amp Dutch Harbor There are cultural reasons for why the overwhelming majority of American youth learn about Pearl Harbor while most Americans are completely unaware about Dutch Harbor and more overtly the Japanese campaign in the Aleutian Islands 0 Pearl Harbor is viewed as one of the most significant events in US history as it was what brought the United States into the Second World War in Europe and the Pacific and longterm changed the course of its approach to foreign policy for the remainder of the 20th century and arguably into the 21St century 0 Historically the United States government has tended to boost up the times when we were seen as having a positive effect on the world as opposed to times where we failed to protect ourselves in this case the results of Pearl Harbor regarding US military action are viewed as necessary for the liberation of Europe and taking revenge against Japan while the Japanese invasion of Alaska the first time any foreign entity successfully invaded the United States since the British in the War of 1812 is seen as a defeat and thus showing weakness within the United States 0 A more practical viewpoint dictates that Dutch Harbor and the Alaska front as a whole were overshadowed by the battles raging in the Pacific Theater around the same time ie Midway
