The flag still flies from the battleship USS West Virginia following the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor.

The attack on Pearl Harbor was brought home to most Americans in grainy black-and-white photographs. The photos galvanized the nation’s will, in LIFE magazine and elsewhere. The picture magazine also covered what happened in the dark days following the attack. Check out some great unpublished photos from LIFE’s files here.
