Not a very good documentary. The DVD covers the whole run run-up to the Pacific war and several battles other than just December 7th but there are several laughable errors. One of their experts explains how a "jet pilot" helped the inexperienced radar operators stationed on the north side of Oahu to misinterpret the blips on their screen as an incoming flight of B-17's rather than flights of zeros. Not many "jet pilots" in Oahu in 1941 I'm betting.
Also the battle of Midway was a victory because the U.S. breaking the Japanese code allowed Admiral Nimitz to know "exactly where the Japanese Carriers were." Yes, breaking the code did allow the U.S. to guess that the attack was headed for Midway but there was nothing "exact" about the carriers locations.
