Seventy years ago

USS Arizona burning after the attack by the Japanese Air Force on Pearl Harbor, December 7, 1941


  1. Some trivia that some people might not know: one ship that survived Pearl Harbor, the USS Phoenix, was sold and, 41 years after the Japanese attack, was sunk by the British – by which time it was called the General Belgrano.

  2. Now that you mention it I do recall that story at the time. But I forgot completely. Thank you, Clarence.
