Pearl Harbor-December 7, 1941
From awesomestories.com
Because the clouds have cleared on Sunday morning - December 7, 1941 - every pilot has an unobstructed view as hundreds of Japanese airplanes approach Pearl Harbor, Hawaii.

With strike force orders from the high command, and detailed information supplied by Takeo Yoshikawa (a Japanese spy at Pearl), pilots know their individual targets.  In 110 minutes, the U.S. Pacific Fleet will be horrendously crippled.

At 7:58 a.m., Lt. Commander Logan Ramsey dispatches an urgent message:

Air Raid on Pearl Harbor.  This is not Drill.

The Arizona, and most of her crew, have only minutes to live.  The ship will burn for three days.

Because the surprise attack is so effective, American resistance doesn't really begin until the second wave of the attack.

From history.com, produced by history channel
On this day in 2001, Italy's Leaning Tower of Pisa reopens after a team of experts spent 11 years and $27 million to fortify the tower without eliminating its famous lean. In the 12th century, construction began on the bell tower for the cathedral of Pisa, a busy trade center on the Arno River in western Italy, some 50 miles from Florence. While construction was still in progress, the tower's foundation began to sink into the soft, marshy ground, causing it to lean to one side. (1:00)

This Day in December 10: First Nobel Prizes Awarded
From history.com, produced by history channel
The first Nobel Prizes are awarded in Stockholm, Sweden, in the fields of physics, chemistry, medicine, literature, and peace. The ceremony came on the fifth anniversary of the death of Alfred Nobel, the Swedish inventor of dynamite and other high explosives. In his will, Nobel directed that the bulk of his vast fortune be placed in a fund in which the interest would be "annually distributed in the form of prizes to those who, during the preceding year, shall have conferred the greatest benefit on mankind." Although Nobel offered no public reason for his creation of the prizes, it is widely believed that he did so out of moral regret over the increasingly lethal uses of his inventions in war. (1:00)
