Author recounts stories of WW II heroes

Historian and diplomat Robert Dorr gave a lively talk at George Mason Regional Library Feb. 26 about the firebombing of Tokyo during World War II and the atomic bombing that brought the war in the Pacific to a close. He also signed copies of his latest book, Mission to Tokyo: The American Airmen Who Took the War to the Heart of Japan.

Here is a brief excerpt of Dorrs talk by Annandale Arts videographer Bob Kovacs:

Interestingly, Kovacs says, Dorr noted that the destruction of much of Tokyo was witnessed by none other than Yoko Ono, whom he interviewed for his book.
