Most widely held works by Bob Considine
Thirty seconds over Tokyo by Ted W Lawson( Book )

46 editions published between 1943 and 2011 in English and held by 2,903 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ted W. Lawson's classic appears in an enhanced reprint edition for the sixtieth anniversary of the legendary Doolittle Raid on Japan. Lawson gives a vivid eyewitness account of the unorthodox assignment that eighty-five intrepid volunteer airmen under the command of celebrated flier James H. Doolittle executed in April 1942. While the raid came off flawlessly, completely surprising the enemy, bad weather, darkness, and a shortage of fuel caused by an early departure took a heavy toll on the raiders. For many, the escape from China proved a greater ordeal. This anniversary edition features a foreword by noted writer Peter B. Mersky and an introduction by Mrs. Ellen R. Lawson, Ted Lawson's widow, as well as twice as many photographs as the original book, several published here for the first time
