To mark the 80th anniversary of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, the BBC’s Witness History presents an hour of personal stories from the time.  We meet a survivor of Pearl Harbor, speak to actor George Takei about his time in a US internment camp, and speak to the son of a Japanese soldier who spent 28 years in the jungle.  Listen for these and other first-hand accounts of the major battles and the aftermath of the war in the Pacific.
