Default History - interesting confluence

FYI...April 18th was the anniversary of a few historically important events. Paul Revere’s Ride, Doolittle’s Raid Over Tokyo and the shoot down if Japanese Adm. Yamamoto. Over Rabaul, New Guinea.*

*Charles Lindbergh was hired as an advisor to help the US P-38 Lightning pilots get the most “mileage” out of their planes in order to intercept Yamamoto’s flight. This usually un-heralded mission had a major inhibiting impact on Japan’s ability to prosecute war for the remainder of the conflict.
