On the map above you can see Pearl Harbor’s location in the middle of the Pacific. This strategic location is why FDR moved the Pacific Fleet to Pearl Harbor in 1940 and why the Japanese chose to attack in 1941.

Pearl Harbor Attack Map
This Map shows the island of Oahu and the routes that the Japanese planes took on their attack on December 7th. Note that the maps says December 8, 1941, because that was the date in Japan at the time of the attack. The Japanese forces did not adjust their time when travelling to Hawaii.
