In Japanese, tora means "tiger." In December of 1941, "tiger, tiger, tiger" was the code phrase that unleashed one of history's most devastating suprise attacks. But the Japanese raid on Pearl Harbor also awakened the "sleeping giant" of American military might, and in the process, sealed Japan's fate and decided the ultimate outcome of the most destructive war in the history of the world.

Now, go beyond the wartime headlines for a revealing, in-depth exploration of World War II's most notorious first strike as experienced by both the Japanese attackers and U.S. forces on the ground. Witness as never before the prelude, onslaught and aftermath of the assault, from Japanese Zero pilots recalling the textbook-perfect execution of their plan, to American servicemen fighting to survive the nightmarish inferno of the battle. With gripping archival combat footage, deeply moving personal accounts and richly detailed historical analysis, it's an unprecedented journey back in time to relive this history-changing day of infamy.

Also included is an inside look at the man who almost single-handedly rebuilt the devastated American Naval fleet in the wake of Pearl Harbor—Admiral Chester Nimitz. Learn how the "Thunder of the Pacific" took the tattered remnants of the Pacific fleet and re-shaped them into the force that ultimately ruled the seas and won the war.
