Researchers Mark Death of Pearl Harbor Mastermind Yamamoto
From the April 11, 2018, Fox News by Chris Carola, AP.
A group of U.S. and Japanese researchers have gone to a site in Papua New Guinea where U.S. fighters shot down a Japanese bomber carrying Yamamoto, who is credited with planning and executing the attack on Pearl Harbor.
U.S. codebreakers learned of his planned route for a tour of Japanese bases in the Solomon Islands.
He was shot down April 18, 1943, 75 years ago today.
