Publisher Description

Valiant men and women traveled the treacherous Himalayan airways to carry supplies, ammunition, and reinforcements to the Chinese. In China Airlift—the Hump, a colorful saga of the China-Burma-India Theater is told with hundreds of photographs and personal accounts of narrow escapes, harrowing evasions of Japanese Zeroes, and the tragedy of the Aluminum Trail. Stories of Basha mates, Basha boys, night visits of roaming tigers, and beloved pets provide the reader with a taste of military life in exotic India. Photographs show breathless views of the snow-capped mountain peaks and the young pilots who dared to fly over them. The Hump Pilots Association has chronicled their own achievements through the years to the present with narrative, color and black-and-white photos, and color plates of an original short snorter.
