9781439200827: An Airline at War: The Story of China National Aviation Corporation and its Men

An Airline at War: The Story of Pan Am’s China National Aviation Corporation and Its Men, by Robert L. Willett, tells the compelling and little known story of the American and Chinese airmen who, for two decades, flew life and death missions over China during world wars, civil wars, and rare moments of peace. An Airline at War: The Story of Pan Am’s China National Aviation Corporation and Its Men captures the high-drama of these pioneer men and women who established a dual-cultural partnership between steadfast allies. In its twenty tumultuous years the CNAC took the lives of 150 crewmembers, some American, but mostly Chinese. All except two of these years were in wartime, when China was fighting not only the Japanese, but also the Communists. Told with heart and grit, Willett’s An Airline at War: The Story of Pan Am’s China National Aviation Corporation and Its Men will deepen anyone’s appreciation for the sacrifice, courage, and bold adventurism of the extraordinary men and women of an airline at war.

About the Author:

Robert L. Willett has an MBA from Western Michigan University. He has been a banker for many years and has held bank presidencies in Michigan and Florida, as well as organizing a bank in Saipan. Retired since 1993, he still does international bank consulting in such diverse locations as Cluj, Romania, Kampala, Uganda, Yuzhno-Sakhalin, Russia, and Baghdad, Iraq.
