Flying Tigers: Claire Chennault and His American Volunteers, 1941-1942

"During the dark, early days of World War II, when the Imperial Japanese army, navy, and air force were running roughshod over Asia and the Pacific, it seemed that nothing could stop them. Only a small band of American mercenary fliers based in Burma and known as the Flying Tigers, led by a leather-faced fighter named Claire Chennault, seemed able to challenge and defeat the Japanese....

"The exciting story of this legendary fighting force that wore American uniforms but Chinese insignia is told in Daniel Ford's definitive history of the legendary Flying Tigers. Every page contains a new tidbit of information and rich, long-forgotten detail." -- World War II magazine, November 2007

Oops! Flying Tigers will be out of print for a few months, since HarperCollins has handed the book back to the original publisher. However, I'm still well supplied! I'll send you an autographed copy for $12.95 including delivery by Media Mail. If you're in a hurry, or live in Alaska or Hawaii, then make it $15.95 for Priority Mail. (PayPal runs your credit card or otherwise takes care of the payment details, and I mail the book, usually the next day.) And an updated digital edition is now available for your Kindle reader or app. A useful companion to the history is Tale of the Flying Tigers, a collection of five short books about the AVG, now available as a paperback from Amazon.com and Barnes & Noble.
