You've never seen TORA! TORA! TORA! ? My goodness, I must have seen it
at least 5 or 6 times when I was growing up. It was a joint Japanese and
American
film recounting the beginning of the Pacific Theater of WW2. It showed
the battles
from the beginning at Pearl Harbor, to somewhere near the middle at Coral
Sea.
The name of the movie comes from the code signal given to Japanese forces
to
start the war, TORA! TORA! TORA!
It is a must see movie for any type of history buff.
