This book is one of the best reads I have ever had the pleasure to pick up. If ever a War story should be made into a film this has to be the one€¦ http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

On the 18th April 1942 sixteen B-25€s took off from the US Navy Carrier €˜Hornet€ on America€s first retaliatory mission towards Japan since Pearl Harbor.

Their Mission: To bomb Japan€s five main cities including Tokyo€¦ They are not expected to come home€¦

This extract is taken from Craig Nelson€s €˜The First Heroes€ and chronicles the story of the €˜Doolittle Raid€ from start to finish.

Having successfully delivered their bombs, most of the squadron run out of fuel and are forced to crash land in Japan, China and the Soviet Union€¦

This is plane seven€s story€¦

Good read Mr Blue Sky. And to think, when this happens to me all I have to do is hit "Refly".

SALUTE to all the brave airmen, service men and women who willingly put themselves at risk for their country.

Thank god this game isn't that immersive.
