Early in the morning of December 7, 1941, Japanese carrier-based planes and submarines attacked the U.S. Pacific Fleet and nearby military airfields at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. Eight American battleships and ten other naval vessels were sunk or badly damaged. A total of 64 American aircraft were destroyed and over 3,400 military personnel were killed or wounded. The attack marked the entrance of Japan into World War II on the side of Nazi Germany and Fascist Italy and the entrance of the U.S. on the side of the allies – thus World War II. The attack was always considered possible but not probable. Were critical judgment errors made by America’s national leaders and its military that made America so vulnerable to this devastating attack? Listen to this stimulating presentation to find out.

Presented by Paul Zigo, Director of the WWII Era Studies Institute.

“Football in America: From a Coal Miner’s Game to a Multi-Billion Dollar Business”

The National Football League is the premier sport in the United States. But it always wasn’t that way. Evan Weiner takes us back to the days when the NFL was a mom and pop store operation with the players and others who witnessed the league’s growth first hand. The game started in the coal mines in western Pennsylvania and is a multi-billion-dollar business today.
