From the DJ: "The gripping sequel to DOOLITTLE'S TOKYO RAIDERS ~ For the Americans, inevitable capture meant solitary imprisonment, starvation, torture, and for some, death. Three were executed by a firing squad in an old Chinese cemetary on October 15, 1942. One died miserable of beri-beri and dysentery on December 1, 1943. Only four came home."; Ex-Library; 9.13 X 6.57 X 1.11 inches; 227 pages.
As a veteran and military historian, I am a lifelong admirer of the courage of General James Doolittle and his Tokyo raiders. 'Four Came Home' is an epic from another era, a time when our nation openly honored such men as these. The planning, the mission and the aftermath - their captivity, torture and eventual release at the end of the war , is a tribute to their faith. In addition, I also learned of the incredible bravery of their rescuers, the men who parachuted into Japan at the immediate end of hostilities. They risked being shot by still-hostile Japanese armed forces.
A life-long student, I am delighted to have learned more about such men as these, recommend their true story to other Americans and military historians, and add their story to my historic collection.
