Question: On what day of the week was the attack on Pearl Harbor?
On Sunday morning, December 7, 1941, Japanese warplanes attacked the home base of the U.S. Pacific fleet at Pearl Harbor. Why Japan chose a Sunday morning was not an accident. Japanese intelligence knew that much of the nation was occupied on Sunday mornings with religious services. On that Sunday morning, much military personnel was attending off-base services, leaving the ships in the harbor understaffed in the event of an emergency. By deciding to attack on a Sunday, Japan had knowingly chosen a day where the United States would not be at full strength and would be ill-prepared for the surprise attack.
