How did the united states respond to the japanese attack on pearl harbor?

2 Answer

  • When Japan bombed Pearl Harbor in 1941 the United States responded by bombing Japan back. They dropped two nuclear bombs, one in Hiroshima and one in Nagasaki. This forced japan to surrender.
  • Roosevelt signed the declaration of war later the same day. ... Public opinion had been moving towards support for entering the war during 1941, but considerable opposition remained until the attack. Overnight, Americans united against the Empire of Japan in response to calls to "Remember Pearl Harbor."
