Pearl Harbor: 24 Hours After

Today on Far Future Horizons we present the critically acclaimed documentary Pearl Harbor: 24 Hours After.

This documentary special offers an in depth look at the critical 24 hour period following the news of Japan's attack on the U.S. naval base in Pearl Harbour, Hawaii on December 7th, 1941 reaching President Franklin D. Roosevelt.

Drawing on exhaustive research and new information provided by the FDR Library, this documentary special gives a rare and surprising glimpse at the man behind the Presidency and how he confronted the enormous challenge of transitioning the nation from peace to war.

There was no direct phone line between Pearl Harbour and the White House. As information slowly trickled in and word of the bombing got out, panic gripped the White House.

Franklin D. Roosevelt’s unique style of leadership and his "a date which will live in infamy" speech did much to enabled him to galvanize the American people in the wake of a grave and potentially demoralizing attack.

This documentary special also features acclaimed historian Steven M. Gillon, author of the recently released Pearl Harbor: FDR Leads the Nation Into War.

Pearl Harbour: 24 Hours After is available on DVD from the History Channel’s online store and from
