Four Came Home by Carroll V. Glines
The gripping story of the survivors of Jimmy Doolittle’s two lost crews
On April 18, 1942, Jimmy Doolittle led the first bombing raid against Japan. Two five-man crews didn’t make it back. Landing on Japanese-occupied territory in China, two drowned and the rest were captured one by one, as thousands of Japanese soldiers, in a massive manhunt, swept southward from Shanghai, scorching the earth behind them and slaughtering a quarter of a million Chinese peasants.
For the Americans, inevitable capture meant solitary imprisonment, starvation, torture, and for some, death. Three were executed by a firing squad, one died miserably of beriberi and dyssentery; only four came home.
Four Came Home is their incredible story – one of bravery, patriotism, and courage under the greatest hardships men can know.
