The fleet approaching Japan is discovered too early, so Doolittle announces that although the raid will still take place it means attacking in daylight rather than at night, and also that the bombers will not have the range to land safely. Although given a chance to withdraw, every man again volunteers. Each one of the 16 bombers manages to struggle into the air, and sets course for Japan.

Synopsis
One airplane escapes to neutral Russia, but the others crash or are destroyed in China, within enemy territory. Some of the raiders die in crashes, some are captured and tortured, others are executed. Most, however, make it back to Allied lines thanks to the work of the Chinese, who suffer a quarter-million dead in revenge. The Raiders hold repeated reunions, and as of the writing of the book Richard E. Cole was the sole survivor, aged 101.
