Tora! Tora! Tora! ¡Tora! ¡Tora! ¡Tora! : el ataque a Pearl Harbor ( Visual )
2 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
¡Tora! ¡Tora! ¡Tora! es la señal japonesa de ataque y esta película meticulasamente recrea el ataque a Pearl Harbor y los sucesos que lo precedieron. Las escenas de inicio muestran las contrastantes posiciones entre los americanos y los japoneses. Los imperialistas japoneses deciden preparar el ataque. La plana mayor de Estados Unidos ignora esta posibilidad. Mensajes japoneses interceptados alertan de ello, pero nunca alcanzan a llegar a los escritorios de la F.D.R. (Oficina de la Defensa Federal). Los avisos de radar son pasados por alto. Incluso la presencia de un submarino japonés en Pearl Harbor antes del ataque, no es reportado. Finalmente llega el día de la Infamia de la manera más espectacular y sobrecogedora jamás filmada. Se trata de la más deslumbrante recreación del día más oscuro de los Estados Unidos, y algunos de sus más intensons momentos
