will certainly approve
your operation M-l.

Lieutenant-Colonel Doolittle
led the raid with a force of 16 B-25s

and an all-volunteer crew of airmen.
Most of the planes carried
500-pound demolition bombs

and single incendiary clusters,
which were dropped on oil stores,
factories and military sites in Tokyo.

A few planes made minor strikes
on Kobe, Yokohama and Nagoya,

with one bomb hitting
the Japanese carrier Ryuko.

News of this raid has improved
American and allied morale,

while at the same time constituting
a blow to Japanese prestige.

Thanks, Sir.
At his press conference today,
President Roosevelt was asked:

""Can you tell us, where did
those planes start from and go to?""

He replied:
""Yes, the time has come to tell you.

They came from our new
secret base at Shangri-la...""

Well, my God, it's Captain Garth!
I was expecting some junior officer.
This is an unexpected honor!

Yeah, like hell it is, Joe!
Admiral Nimitz sent me over to...
- To chew my ass off, huh?.

Officially, I'm supposed to question
your estimate of Japanese intentions.

Why so grim, Matt?. Doolittle's attack
should've thrilled you CinCPAC people.

Not by a long shot.
That damn raid could boomerang on us.

We only got 4 carriers
in the Pacific. We need to rebuild.

Now the boss is afraid Yamamoto's
going to jump back at us. But where?.

We got the latest intercepts here.
