Pearl Harbor is on the island of O'ahu, Hawai'i, west of Honolulu.  Much of the harbor and surrounding land was in 1941 and continues to be a deep water harbor for the US Navy.  On December 7, 1941 a Japanese Naval Fleet secretly moved into position north of the island of O'ahu and launched a surprise attach on the Pacific Fleet at anchor in Pearl Harbor attacking at 7:55am.  This was the event that resulted in the United Staes entering World War II.
