On the morning of April 18th, 1942, just four months following the devastating surprise attack on Pearl Harbor, sixteen Army Air Force B-25 bombers under the command of Lieutenant Colonel James Doolittle engaged in a daring aerial raid to strike back at the enemy’s capital of Tokyo. For his role, Doolittle was awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor.
Robert Taylor’s classic masterwork was created with the technical assistance of Jimmy Doolittle himself, and portrays the moment that Doolittle flies over the carrier to check his compass bearing while another B-25 launches from the heaving deck of the Hornet.
