Story of a WWII pilot awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross for his participation in the historic Doolittle Raid on Tokyo. Lt. William G. Farrow, a 24-year-old North Carolina pilot, was fighting to keep America free, regardless of personal risk. His voluntary role in the raid on Tokyo was to bomb the Mitsubishi aircraft factory. Farrow was captured when his plane went down and later executed in a Shanghai cemetery. In the final hours leading to his execution, Lt. Farrow prepared to die the way he lived, as a witness to God and His will. This is an account of the high-profile mission designed to boost American morale and put Japan on notice and the American hero who helped make it possible.
