Living History: James H. Doolittle

Retired Lt. Col. Don Houk brings to life James H. Doolittle, one of the most famous Generals of WWII, and his famous Raid on Tokyo. Developed with the support of four of the famed Doolittle Raiders, the presentation highlights Doolittle’s life from birth to the first bombing mission on Japan in response to Pearl Harbor. 

 

With only Lt. Col. Dick Cole, Doolittle’s co-pilot on the Doolittle Raid, as the last surviving member of the Doolittle Raid, the presentation is even more important today for students and adults alike.
