The December 7, 1941, Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor remains a “day that will live in infamy” to most Americans, but less well known is the devastating air attack just hours later on U.S. forces in the Philippines under the command of General Douglas MacArthur.

The MacArthur Memorial hosted this discussion and provided the video. close
