Attack on Pearl Harbor, Hawaii by the Japanese Navy on December 7, 1941, as filmed from the deck of U.S. Navy Hospital Ship, USS Solace (AH-5). Ships docked at Pearl Harbor. Several small launches speed across the calm harbor. Suddenly a bomb bursts in the water, behind one of the launches. Several U.S. SBD Dauntless and F4F aircraft, from the USS Enterprise, fly over the deck of the Hospital Ship, with their landing gear down (to land at Ford Island). U.S. Navy ship USS Nevada (BB-36) leaves the harbor at high speed, throwing up a bow wave. Japanese aircraft bomb U.S. Navy ship USS Arizona (BB-39) docked. The ship explodes and sinks. A large smoke column rises from the explosion. (This image has been reversed. From the perspective of the USS Solace, the Arizona should be pointing to the right, not to the left.) Anti aircraft firing from U.S. Navy ships fills air with black Flak puffs. Various ships burn.
