Jeff Underwood, historian at the National Museum of the U.S. Air Force in Dayton, Ohio, talked about the Doolittle Raiders. The Doolittle Raid, also known as the Tokyo Raid, took place during World War II, and was an air raid by the United States on the Japanese capital of Tokyo and other strategic targets. Although the Doolittle Raid caused only minor damage, it forced the Japanese to recall combat forces for home defense, raised fears among the Japanese civilians, and boosted morale among Americans and their Allies.
