“The attack on Pearl Harbor was a coordinated airwave of strategic brilliance, though targeted quite unwisely, fortunately for the United States. The first of two waves consisted of more than 180 Japanese aircraft, led by Commander Fuchida. This wave closed on Oahu from the north, with dive bombers and fighters peeling off to deal with the various air bases, and the torpedo bombers splitting to take Pearl Harbor from two sides. Overhead, more dive bombers waited to complete the destruction. As the momentum of the first strike began to slacken, then the second wave arrived of 167 Japanese aircraft! But United States defenses were better organized, so that the second wave was not quite as effective as the first.”
