Rare Signed Doolittle
Raiders Book. The raid, which occurred on April 18, 1942, approximately
four months after Japan's attack on the U.S. naval base at Pearl Harbor,
was the brainchild of then Lt. Col. Jimmie Doolittle. Sixteen crews took
off the USS Hornet to strike the Japanese homeland's military and
industrial targets. This was the first time in history that a plane as
large as a B-25 was able to successfully take-off from an aircraft
carrier. The raiders were forced to launch early, due to a Japanese
fishing trawler spotting the carrier. Instead of hitting Japan under the
cover of darkness, the targets were lit by daylight and there was not
enough fuel on board for the aircraft to make it to their rally point in
China. A brilliant read, and great investment for the future. Hard Back
Signed in Pencil By Five Doolittle Raiders.
