"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
Flying Tigers: Claire Chennault and His American Volunteers, 1941-1942 is available as an e-book at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and other online stores. The paperback is likewise for sale on Amazon and elsewhere, or you can get an autographed copy directly from me.
This is the revised and updated edition of the prize-winning history history of the AVG, published in hardcover by Smithsonian Books and in paperback by HarperCollins. This third edition, from Warbird Books, includes much new material. Blue skies! — Daniel Ford
