Introduction

The Bonfire As I slowly walked to the end of my garden I could not help but harbour an immense feeling of power. I was going to light the bonfire, I was going to release the caged fury of the flames. I reached the end of the garden, there it was, standing proud and majestically despite the chains, for I had not yet lit the bonfire.

  1. Bombing of Pearl Harbour

    Probably more important in the short run was the damage of over 155 aircraft, damage to the main forward naval base in the Pacific, and to American pride. Genda's plan, and Nagumo's execution, left the transportation of the Pearl Harbor base and the Navy Yard, except the battleships, almost untouched.

  2. Pearl Harbour re-visited.
