In stock

On the 18th April, 1942 a short time after Pearl Harbor 16 B-25's took off from the carrier Hornet in heavy seas. The B-25's had been stripped down to enable them to get off the deck. The target was Tokyo 800 miles away. The raiders managed to reach and bomb Tokyo then fly on to China to crash land. Only one aircraft survived but many of the crews lived.

The shock of the raid on Japan caused the military to try and expand its perimeter further into the central and south Pacific with catastrophic consequences. The prints are signed by Jimmy Doolittle and 13 of the intrepid aircrew.

The Publishers Proof edition comes with a matching number pencil print "First Strike Against Tokyo" signed by Jimmy Doolittle a further two raiders and Tung-Sheng Liu who helped some of the raiders avoid capture by the Japanese in China.
