This book tells of the difficulties of setting up and operating a joint Chinese-American airline, China National Aviation Corporation (CNAC) in the 1930s and 1940s in a China beset by internal conflicts and an expanding war with Japan. Bond's personal stories of the evacuations of Shanghai and Hankow, and of the successful but heartbreaking CNAC evacuation of Hong Kong are truly memorable. The book looks at the forces that shaped China in the early-to-mid twentieth century, and chronicles Bond's interactions with notables including Generalissimo and Madame Chiang Kai-shek, Generals Claire Lee Chennault, Douglas MacArthur, and George Marshall.
