Stan Cohen takes you back to America's first major strike against Japan since Pearl Harbor, 4 months earlier. What an incredible event, On April 18, 1942, after being spotted by a Japanese boat, Jimmy Doolittle and his 16 air crews took off from the USS Hornet to bomb Tokyo and other cities. It was a full 24 hours earlier than they had planned to launch, as well as hundreds of miles away from the intended launch point. Before they left, they all knew that with this sudden change in plans, they did not have enough fuel to fly all the way to friendly areas in China to land safely. They chose to go anyway. After hitting their intended targets, every single plane went down either in the water or in occupied China (except one which managed to land in Russia where the crew was promptly interned). Eight men were captured by the Japanese and only 4 of them survived the 3 1/2 year imprisonment. Japan was shocked and mortified that someone was actually able to hit them on their homeland so unexpectedly. It was a major morale booster for the USA at a time when the Japanese were winning in the Pacific. Mr. Cohen includes some fantastic photos and at the end of the book he includes a follow-up about the surviving crew members today. There are also accounts of expeditions that went back to the crash sites and talked to the Chinese people who helped the Raiders make it back home safely.

This fine book is a complete view of the mission. Though the book is 180 pages, Cohen covers every aspect of the mission with pertinent detail. The extra features make the book stand out. Several maps are included that explain the mission better than a narrative. A great many photos illustrate the unfolding story of the mission. A section covers the motion pictures with text and photos. I have read of this mission over a period of 40 years or so and found Cohen's book to be very complete, factual, and reliable. I learned some new informationa as well. Written in 1983 the book stands the test of time. As I scale modeler I was looking for more photos of the aircraft but since 1983 the mission has been declassified and the internet now has the additional photos.

The Doolittle raid of April '42 always fascinated me. This book, in NEW condition, tells the story in pictures and text. Proudly displayed with my WWII memorabilia.

Everything that can be said about this book has been said. On a personal level, it added two more pictures of my mother's relative, Omer Duquette,Engineer/gunner on #12,Fickle Finger #2278. he and the plane are in this book. It could use more historical facts as an addendum..not a criticism by me , Mr Cohen might not have known the fate of some raiders. Omer bailed after the raid on Yokohama, was picked up by Chinese sympathisers,hid in a cave and eventually made his way to Chungking (sp). he broke his ankle in the bailout. He was killed several months later on the Burma Road raid,when his and two B-25's flew into a mountain near Lashio, Burma. Jimmy Doolittle personally dedicated the Am Legion in W Warwick ,RI ,in his name . Much more on Omer can be found via a Google search.Just a bit more info for those interested in this subject.
