And since it is Memorial Day weekend...
There's a great documentary called:
"Dick Winters: Hang Tough"
Remember "Band of Brothers"?
With Damian Lewis as Dick Winters...
This doc is about the real Dick Winters who had recently passed...
And another good one about the Doolittle Raiders...called Doolittle's Raiders: A Final Toast
About the raid and interviews with the last surviving members....also details how many that survived the actual raid later perished in combat after participating in the raid...
Really great history.
The carrier Hornet that the 16 B-25s took off from
was later sunk in the battle of the Santa Cruz Islands.....
