Summary
  • "In the twelve months centered around the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, a diverse group of American and British flyers fought one of the most remarkable air campaigns of WWII While leaders in Washington and London viewed the Far East as a lost cause, pilots including Claire Chennault, "Pappy" Boyington, and Art Donahue bought time for an Allied regrouping against Japan's relentless assault in the China-Burma-India theater."--Jacket
  • "Formed by Chennault, also known as the Flying-Tigers, were contract employees working for the Chinese government. As a result, they received virtually no official American recognition for their efforts. The group was known for-their romantic, reckless spirit. They performed remarkably with outdated planes and equipment in ill-repair, were almost always heavily outnumbered in battle, and were seen by outsiders as hard-drinking rebels."--Jacket
  • "Jerome Klinkowitz brings together not only the commanders' stories but the often more colorful - and sometimes more accurate - accounts of life and battle by the men who flew these planes and the women who participated on the ground."--Jacket
