Thirty Seconds Over Tokyo is an account of the historic Doolittle Raid on Tokyo in 1942 by a crew member who lost a leg in the incident. Sixteen B-25's bombed industrial targets in Japan at close range.

The mission was a success, and Captain Lawson's plane bombed its assigned targets in just 30 seconds. However, because of bad weather, the plane ran short on fuel and crashed in China. Luckily Lawson and his men were rescued by the Chinese.

Thirty Seconds Over Tokyo is an excellent addition to your vintage World War 2 collection or home library.


The book Thirty Seconds Over Tokyo is in good shape for its age with no rips or tears.
