HISTORICALLY IMPORTANT TYPED LETTER SIGNED BY JAMES H. DOOLITTLE DISCUSSING IN EXTENSIVE DETAIL HIS FAMOUS DOOLITTLE RAID AND HOW HE BELIEVES THAT GENERAL GEORGE S. PATTON WAS THE GREATEST WWII LEADER. Historically important typed letter signed by, J. Doolittle, discussing in extensive detail his famous Doolittle Raid and how he believes that General George S. Patton was the greatest World War II leader: Have your letter of January 23, the pictures of the Museum and copy of Predcos Annual Report. Thank you very much. Ross Greening – who has passed on – designed and fabricated the very elementary bombsight we used. It was merely a V slot to sight through and an inverted V to sight at with an altitude scale. As we bombed from about 1500 feet no complicated sight was required. General Patton was, in my mind, the greatest leader of men in World War II.
