Pearl Harbor, also called 'Pu' uloa ', is located on Oahu Island, west of Honolulu, the state capital of Hawaii. This site is known for the Japanese attack in 1941, when 1,177 sailors drowned in the water. The motif was born in 1931 when the Japanese began their operation to create an empire across Asia. After attacking China in 1937, they moved to Thailand and the Philippines to achieve their goal. Great Britain (UK) was against this action and began to stop aid and freeze Japanese assets in each country. After the United Kingdom, the United States also pressured Japan to stop its move. To respond to the US, the Japanese began attacking through aircraft and dwarf submarines. Although the Americans cracked the attack code, they could not figure out the exact location before the attack. The Japanese attacked and turned the day into a black day, as the Americans damaged the fleet and hunted 2,350 lives, 1,177 from Arizona.
