About this title


A biography of Captain Claire Chennault, the man who stemmed the Japanese tide in the Far East with his legendary Flying Tigers during the Second World War

From Library Journal:

Clair Chennault went to China in 1937 to survey the Chinese Air Force. He stayed on to organize the legendary Flying Tigers and to lead the China, Burma, India Theater's 14th Air Force in World War II. Samson traces the career of this early prophet of air power who fought the Japanese and became involved in a number of controversies. After the war, Chennault continued to serve the Nationalist Chinese Government and, along with his Civilian Air Transport (CAT), provided a number of clandestine and unique air services to Asia. Samson, who served under Chennault in both the 14th Air Force and CAT, writes with affection. Recommended for most collections.George F. Scheck, Naval Underwater Systems Lib., Newport, R.I.
