The attack on Pearl Harbour remains one of the most important events in American history, and marks the point at which the American public’s opinion about involvement in World War II changed; as a result of the attack, US leaders were able to garner public support to enter the war on the side of the Allies. Intended to prevent the US fleet from engaging in military operations in the Southeast Asia, the attack shocked the American people and was described by President Franklin D. Roosevelt as "a date which will live in infamy".
