Target Tokyo:Jimmy Doolittle and the Raid That Avenged Pearl Harbor
In Target Tokyo James M. Scott offers a vivid account of Lt. Col. Jimmy Doolittle’s raid that guided 16 planes and 80 well-trained pilots on a mission of retaliation and, more importantly, an uncompromising message to Japan’s wartime regime. Doolittle led the successful raid on April 18, 1942, just four months after the attack on Pearl Harbor. It was a daring feat that healed the nation and set the stage for the ultimate defeat of Japan.
With the help of sources never accessed before in Japan, Russia and China, Scott provides compelling insights into America’s first attack on Japan in World War II.
