        America Responds to Pearl Harbor Attack | World War II Stories

        Within days of the attack on Pearl Harbor, war was declared against what were now being called the Axis Powers: Germany, Italy, and Japan.  As the shock of the attacks in December wore off, the American government began mobilizing to fight back. Across the country, able-bodied men either volunteered or were drafted. Thousands of women joined the military or entered the workforce. Those men already in uniform were gathered and sent to attack the axis powers. Learn more with the videos from the World War II Stories series.
