The infamous Pearl Harbor incident still remains as devastating, as intriguing and as controversial as ever. Do you think you can identify important facts, figures and speculations about that incident? Then try taking this quiz to see how well-versed you are about history.
While speculations and theories abound surrounding this incident, it’s no surprise that the whole world was also shocked about it back then. Even if it is an event that happened more than seven decades ago, an event as huge as this one will not -- and should not -- be forgotten. In fact, it is one of the most talked-about events during the 20th century, because it has affected world relations tremendously.
Sure, this incident may also appear like "merely" one of the important topics in historical studies (something that gets revisited in the academic circles only), but what we could all learn from Pearl Harbor is that an incident as monumental as this one could still happen today. In fact, several decades later, an attack of the same devastation and magnitude happened again at the beginning of the 21st century -- 9/11 -- and the effect is just the same, but now amplified worldwide due to media.
Interesting and intriguing, isn't it? So, who can still remember the remnants of the big world wars out there? Test your military and historical knowledge with this quiz about Pearl Harbor -- and learn something new today.
