    Immediately after Japan's December 7, 1941, attack on Pearl Harbor, President Roosevelt sought to restore the honor of the United States with a dramatic act of vengeance: a retaliatory bombing raid on Tokyo itself. In those early days of World War II, America was ill-prepared for any sort of warfare. But FDR was not to be dissuaded, and at his bidding a squadron of scarcely trained army fliers, led by the famous daredevil Jimmy Doolittle, set forth on what everyone regarded as a suicide mission.

    "When I run into so many glaring factual errors..."

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    ...its's tough to deal with parts of the story that were new to me. "B-26 Marauders" became "B-26s and Marauders", or getting the Japanese code for Midway wrong (it was 'AF', not 'AH'!)...that mixed in with the mispronunciations, and I was pretty disappointed.


    What didn’t you like about Raymond Todd’s performance?

    Mispronunciations were very troubling.
