Remembering Midway

Remembering Midway

Call in to speak with the host

In this first segment of the four-part series – Remembering Midway this year marks the 67th anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor. Four months after that attack, a daring plan was conceived to bomb targets on the Japanese mainland. Gen. James H. Doolittle led a squadron off the deck of the carrier USS Hornet to carry out this mission. While the actual damage done to Japan's war-making infrastructure was, minimal, the news of the successful attack on the mainland of Japan stirred the hearts of Americans. To learn more about this daring raid, we will hear, in his own words, what he felt about this raid. Courtesy of U.S. Naval Institute Oral History Program.
