On the 75th anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor, Steven Gillon, professor of history at the University of Oklahoma and resident historian for the History Channel and author of Pearl Harbor: FDR Leads the Nation Into War (Basic Books, 2011), talks about the ensuing 24 hours and takes calls from WWII veterans. Also, hear a clip of WNYC's original reporting on Pearl Harbor; WNYC was the first radio station to report on the attack.
