The Call to Glory is the first documentary to tell the complete story of the American Volunteer Group, nicknamed the Flying Tigers.
Under the leadership of Claire Lee Chennault, the A.V.G. was meant to bolster Chinese resistance to Japanese aggression, to keep the United States from having to fight a two-front war. It was America's first covert operation. Due to the Freedom of Information Act, material has been uncovered giving a new perspective on the origins of the war in the Pacific.
In flying missions in defense of China, the A.V.G. established standards of performance that have never been surpassed. The film includes archival footage( never available before), interviews with A.V.G. veterans, radio broadcasts of the era, and an original musical score. It captures the sense of drama that made the Flying Tigers an enduring American legend.
