The Doolittle raid is a remarkable event of WW2. Its widely seen as a victory for the US, even though every plane that took place in the raid was lost. The cost of the raid was obscene. 2 aircraft carriers, 4 cruisers, 8 destroyers, sailed across the Pacific for 2 weeks, all to deliver 16 bombers (all lost) and drop 16 tons of bombs on Japan. Its like shooting people with gold bullets!
However, fundamentally, it was the Doolittle raid that set into motion the cogs that would change the entire course of WW2!
