About this Item

Random House, New York. 1943. Hardcover. Stated First Printing. A Random House Wartime Book. Book is tight, square, and unmarked but for gift inscription on FFFP dated Sept 1943. Book Condition: VG+; slight soiling of boards esp at front gutter. No DJ. Red tinted top textblock. Maps as endpapers. Tan boards and spine with maroon lettering and bomber imprint on spine and front board. 221 pp. This first-hand account of the Doolittle Raid - the secret preparations, the war itself and the almost unbelievable adventures of the airmen in the weeks that followed - is one of the greatest stories of American bravery and ingenuity that has ever been written. Ted Lawson piloted one of the planes that roared over Tokyo. In the subsequent crack-up on the Chinese coast, he sustained injuries that ultimately cost him a leg. The story of his rescue, told simply and directly, makes thrilling and moving reading, serving again to remind us all of the great acts of sacrifice and heroism performed by members of our armed forces during World War II. A very presentable copy. Bookseller Inventory # 002784
