"Mission to Tokyo"
Robert F. Dorr will speak to the group on December 5 about the experiences of American airmen in the Pacific and Bob's experience researching and writing about them. His talk is drawn from his book, "Mission to Tokyo,"  a character-driven, Stephen Ambrose-style history of B-29 Superfortress bomber crews and their leaders in World War II. Bob says he has new insights into the final months of the allies' war against Japan, including the March 10, 1945, firebombing of the Japanese capital and the bombing of Hiroshima. Bob previously spoke to the club on December 13, 2013, about a different topic.
