The U.S. military was trying to come up with an idea of how to strke back at the Japanese mainland .One crazy idea was to launch a squadron of medium B-25 Mitchell bombers off the deck of a U.S. navy aircraft carrier.The officer leading the raid was Lt. Colonel James Dolittle,a well known pilot in the Army Air Force.His force of 16 medium bombers were to attack not only Tokyo,but other selected cities such as Osaka and Yokohama were to targeted by Dolittles' Raiders.Once the raid was over,the aircraft were to land in China and were flown back to the states.Most crews were either shot down trying to get to China,crash-landed in Japanese-occupied China where they were captured by Japanese troops .Was this review helpful?
