The Doolittle Raid; the 75th anniversary

On Saturday, April 18, 1942, US Lieutenant Colonel Jimmy Doolittle led an air raid on the Japanese island of Honshu The Sixteen B-25B Mitchell bombers and 80 courageous men led by Doolittle was the first air raid during World War II to strike the Japanese Home Islands . It demonstrated that Japan itself was vulnerable to American air attack, served as retaliation for the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor on Sunday, December 7, 1941, and provided an important boost to American morale.
