Publisher Comments:

Osprey's study of the United States' first offensive response to the Pearl Harbor attacks of World War II (1939-1945). In early 1942, the strategic situation was bleak for the United States. She had been in continual retreat since Pearl Harbor, surrendering major areas such as the Philippines, and was preparing for the worst in Hawaii and on the West Coast. The Japanese, on the other hand, had secured a well-defended perimeter, and were set for further expansion. Something needed to happen quickly and be of considerable impact. The April 1942 Doolittle Raid on Japan was a way to achieve this. This book examines the planning, execution, and aftermath of this innovative, daring and risky attack, which would show that the Japanese navy and air forces were anything but invincible.

Campbell64, November 5, 2006 (view all comments by Campbell64)
It was good to see a new book on the Doolittle Raid. There are two photos of the target area plus one before and one after that are attributed to Lt. Knobloch. These four photos were actually taken by Lt. Campbell, the navigator. If you look at a photo, a model, or an actual B-25B it is clear that the target photos were taken from each side through the navigators windows rather than the co-pilots window. See also "The Doolittle Raid" by C.V. Glines, 1988, photos following page 86.
