The Seventh Fighter Command had been waiting all war to avenge Pearl Harbor. Exactly 40 months after that fateful day, 100 of its Mustangs took off with 300 B-29s to attack mainland Japan. By Don Brown and Jerry Yellin

Ears on the World

Civilian FCC operatives fought on the front lines of the radio war, catching spies, blocking leaks, directing lost planes, and saving ships from U-boat wolves. By Leo Caisse
