[Note: It has been pointed out to me that I have made a verbal typo and read 24,000 instead of 2400 died at Pearl Harbor, the written version of the article has all of the accurate statistics, unfortunately the audio is not so easy to correct and will have to be done at a later date.]
The article clearly states the correct number:
“On December 7th, 1941, the United States naval base at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii was attacked by the Japanese navy, killing 2,403 Americans and wounding 1,178.”
It sounds like a verbal typo, 24 thousand instead of 24 hundred. Not a big deal in this context.
Well written article but a mistake has been made. At 2:09 you state that 24,000 people died at Pearl Harbor. In reality, only 2400 died.
