The Doolittle Raid- LQuest Screening/ Lecture

Date: 

Tuesday, October 16, 2018

Description: 

From LQuest: "The attack of 16 US bombers on Japan carried out on April 16, 1942, led by Lt. Col. Jimmy Doolittle, was one of the most stirring military actions of WWII. Launched from the aircraft carrier USS Hornet, the raid stunned Japanese leaders and gave hope to an American public faced with months of Japanese victories in the Pacific war. This program will begin Oct. 16 at 9:30 AM, by viewing the great 1944 wartime film, "Thirty Seconds Over Tokyo," one of the great wartime films. The following lecture will examine the origins and execution of the attack and how well the film depicted the events. Presented by David Lilly in the Downtown Library auditorium; info. at 256-529-8695 and http://www.lquest.org
