    4 December 7, 1941: The battleship USS Arizona belches smoke as it topples over into the sea during a Japanese surprise attack on Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. The ship sank with more than 80 percent of its 1,500-man crew. The attack, which left 2,343 Americans dead and 916 missing, broke the backbone of the U.S. Pacific Fleet and forced America out of a policy of isolationism. President Franklin D. Roosevelt announced that it was "a date which will live in infamy" and Congress declared war on Japan the morning after. (AP Photo) Photo by Add this to feed

The American tanker R.P. Resor sinks after it was torpedoed, on Feb 26, 1942, five miles off Sea Girt, Delaware. Of the crew of 50, only 2 survived. It showed how menacingly close U-boats came to the country's East Coast in early 1942. But the unprecedented speed of U.S. shipbuilding soon surpassed Allied losses and forced the Germans, with 696 of 830 subs sunk, to concede the seas.

The King and Queen stand amid the bomb damage at Buckingham Palace during WWII. The Palace was a deliberate target for the Luftwaffe as their High Command felt that the destruction of the Royal Palace would demoralize the nation. But it had the opposite effect and the Queen was famously to utter "I'm glad we have been bombed. Now I can look the East End in the face."
