USS Enterprise, December, 1941Download nowEnlargeShow similar images

Title: USS Enterprise, December, 1941

Description: The wrecked SBD Dauntless scout bomber flown by Ensign John R. McCarthy, with gunner Mitchell Cohn, one of eighteen planes sent on a routine scouting from the carrier USS Enterprise (CV-6) as Admiral William F. Halsey's task force was approaching Pearl Harbor, Oahu, Hawaii, at the time of the Japanese attack; McCarthy's plane was shot down by Japanese fighters near Ewa Airfield, but McCarthy parachuted to safety, breaking a leg; his gunner, Cohn, could not free himself from the falling, burning flame and was killed; some of the Enterprise planes engaged the Japanese fighters, downing several before they themselves crashed; all of the Dauntless bombers had orders to maintain radio silence so they did not contact the Enterprise when seeing the Japanese planes attacking Pearl Harbor; Admiral William F. Halsey (William Frederick Halsey, Jr.; AKA: Bull; 1882-1959) heard of the attack from a land-based operator and immediately responded by saying: "My God, they are shooting at my boys!"
