Pearl Harbor Attack, 7 December 1941
Forward magazines explode on USS Arizona (BB-39), after she was struck by a Japanese armor-piercing bomb.
At far right is the mainmast of USS Oklahoma, heeled over sharply to port as she capsized. Slightly to the left of Oklahoma are the forward turrets of USS Tennessee (BB-43), with the rest of that ship covered by the blast from Arizona's explosion.
At far left is the bow of USS Vestal (AR-4), moored outboard of Arizona.
