Summary
"In December 1941, as American forces tallied the dead at Pearl Harbor, President Franklin Roosevelt gathered with his senior military counselors to plan an ambitious counterstrike against ... Tokyo. Four months later ... sixteen U.S. Army bombers under the command of daredevil pilot Jimmy Doolittle lifted off from the deck of the USS Hornet on a one-way mission to pummel the enemy's factories, refineries, and dockyards and then escape to Free China. For Roosevelt, the raid was a propaganda victory ... In Japan, outraged over the deaths of innocent civilians--including children--military leaders launched an ill-fated attempt to seize Midway that would turn the tide of the war"--Dust jacket flap
