Avenging Strike by Robert Bailey features B-25 Mitchells of the Doolittle Raiders.
April 18, 1942 and B-25 Mitchells take off in turn from the deck of the U.S.S. Hornet. The Doolittle Raid was the United States military response to President Roosevelt's desire to show that they could strike back at the enemy despite a series of setbacks in the Pacific Theatre of Operations. Along with the legendary Dambuster Raid (Operation Chastise) this aerial combat action ranks as one of the most audacious of World War II and launched the war-time career of General J.H. "Jimmy" Doolittle into prominence.
Avenging Strike by Robert Bailey is signed by eight Doolittle Raiders:
RICHARD E. COLE
DAVID M. JONES
RICHARD A. KNOBLOCH
JAMES HERBERT MACIA Jr.
JOSEPH W. MANSKE
HARRY C. McCOOL
