Description

As the deck of the USS Hornet heaved under a mounting sea, sixteen B-25 Mitchell bombers under the command of Colonel James Doolittle lifted off into the wind.

It was the morning of Monday, 18 April 1942 and, taking a final look at the carrier rapidly disappearing into the distance, the B-25s headed west on what each of the five man crews knew was a one-way ride. With luck they might make it to Nationalist China but first they had an important mission to complete – destination Tokyo!
