Summary, etc.:
This is a gripping account of the American secret mission designed to boost morale during the darkest days of World War II and the valiant American who helped make it possible. William G. Farrow, a twenty-four-year-old South Carolina pilot, was no different than most patriotic young men of his time: he was fighting to keep America free, regardless of personal risk. His voluntary role in the Doolittle Raid on Tokyo was to bomb the Mitsubishi aircraft factory, but Farrow was captured when his plane ran out of gas and went down. He was executed six months later in a Shanghai cemetery. In the final hours leading to the Doolittle Raider's execution at the hands of the Japanese on October 15, 1942, Lt. Bill Farrow prepared to die the way he lived, as a witness to God and His will. He was posthumously awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross for his role in this raid. Dr. John Chandler Griffin acquaints us with the influential people who had a hand in shaping his lofty values and the events that led to his enlistment and final mission.
