Description

Launching, in a rough sea, Jimmy Doolittle’s B-25 leaves the heaving deck of the carrier USS Hornet, his mission to lead a small force of B-25 Mitchell bombers to bomb Tokyo.

On April 18, 1942, under the leadership of Lieutenant Colonel Jimmy Doolittle, a small force of B-25 Mitchell light bombers set forth on one of the most audacious air raids of World War II, to make a direct strike at the heart of Imperial Japan. Unlike any other mission the crews departed on their dangerous journey with the full knowledge that each was on a one-way ticket. Even if they achieved success, they would not have enough fuel to make the return journey and would have to head for China, bail out and rely on the resistance to get them home.

Every man was a volunteer. Each knew the dangers. Some paid with their lives. Joining the artist Nicolas Trudgian in signing this important edition are members of General “Jimmy” Doolittle’s famous aircrew who took part in the historic raid on Tokyo:
