In honor of the last Doolittle Raider’s passing…
This one is only 9 minutes of official film.
This one is one of the newsreels that was shown in theaters.
And this is a write up of the raid, HERE from Eyewitness to History.
An amazing piece of history, considered by many military historians as the ‘start’ of Japan’s fall, since the Japanese did not believe anyone could ever bomb Japan. This sent the Japanese military into a scheme to retaliate and sink all carriers, which culminated in the Battle of Midway, where they lost four carriers to our one.
