Why We Fight: War Comes To America

War Comes to America is the seventh and final film of Frank Capra's Why We Fight World War II propaganda film series.

In the end, it was the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbour (December 1941) that dragged the United States into the World War. 

To many Americans it was unclear why they, just as at the end of WW I, would again fight for European interests. This film looks back on how the United States got involved in the war.
