“An attack on the Japanese homeland would cause confusion in the minds of the Japanese people and sow doubt about the reliability of their leaders. … Americans badly needed a morale boost.“– Jimmy Doolittle
In the early months of 1942, the Japanese charged across the Pacific overwhelming all in its path. Still reeling from Pearl Harbor, the US military conceived a daring plan; they would strike at the heart of Japan by air, demonstrating that the Empire was vulnerable.
On the morning of 18 April 1942 Lt Col “Jimmy” Doolittle led a force of 16 B-25 Bombers from the heaving deck of the carrier USS Hornet – something that had never before been attempted.
