1942 Doolittle raid of Japan....



Item # 663902

April 19, 1942

SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE, April 19, 1942

* The famous Doolittle raid of Japan
* U.S. Army Air Force B-25B Mitchell bombers
* USS Hornet aircraft carrier


The front page has a nice headline that reads: "Four Great Jap Cities Set Afire By U. S. Bombs" with subheads. (see) More on pages 10 & 11 with some related photos and map. This was the famous Doolittle raid on Japan. It was not known at the time that James "Jimmy" Doolittle was involved due to secrecy. Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication.
Complete with all 30+ pages, light toning at the margins, small binding holes along the spine, generally nice.
