DOOLITTLE'S RAIDERS. Photograph signed: "John Doolittle", "Ed Horton", "Jacob DeShazer", "Bill Bower", "C. McClure", "R.E. Cole" and "Tom Griffin". Color, 10x8. Photograph depicts members of Doolittle's Raiders present at their 1995 reunion. Signatures of six of the 80 men who took off in 16 B-25 Mitchell bombers from the U.S.S. Hornet for a daring raid over Japan on April 18, 1942. The seventh signature is that of Doolittle's son, John, who was present at the reunion. Led by James "Jimmy" Doolittle, the raid, which marked the first time fully loaded bombers took off from an aircraft carrier, was in retaliation for Japan's surprise attack on Pearl Harbor. "Doolittle's Raiders" hit targets in Tokyo, Yokohama and other cities and scored a huge victory for U.S. morale at a time when Japan's position in the Pacific seemed impregnable. Fine condition.
