Publisher Description

The Flying Tigers were the most famous fighter pilots ever to fly for the United States, yet officially they part of the Chinese Air Force. Who were these men, where did they come from, and what happened to them after their service with the American Volunteer Group? Novelist (and prize-winning historian) Daniel Ford answers those questions in this compelling account of the AVG and its commander. "Boy," wrote Claire Chennault from China in 1938, "if the Chinese only had 100 good pursuit planes and 100 fair pilots, they'd exterminate the Jap air force!" It wasn't until 1941 that he began to make good on that prediction, persuading the White House to loan China the money to equip and recruit such a combat group, and to allow American airmen to fly for China. In the end, 109 pilots sailed for the Far East. This is their story.
