SIGNED without inscription by the legendary Jimmy Doolittle and his flight assistant, Ben Kelsey to the half-title page. A third signature is present but unknown. “Special Limited Edition - Commemorating the Fiftieth Anniversary of the First ' Blind Flight ' by James H. Doolittle, September 24, 1979.” Very gently read and not remaindered. Interior is clean and unmarked.  Laminate wraps (soft cover) very gently bumped to extremities with some creasing to the spine and mild shelfwear to show.  Well known for the daylight raid on Tokyo that earned him the Congressional Medal of Honor and as leader of the “Doolittle Raiders, his perhaps more significant contribution was his lifelong dedication to the advancement and safety of aviation.
