    This is a wonderful video that covers the attack on Pearl Harbor in a way that is very engaging for the students and completely realistic. In the 10 minutes the video runs, the viewer has the opportunity to see and feel the reality of the bombing from the perspective of those sailors on the USS Arizona.
