From the Author
Cambodia's suffering was playing out as a tragic subplot, masked by the main story of America's chaotic exodus from Vietnam. Nevertheless, all volunteers put forth a maximum effort, as Flying Tigers lived up to its "can-do" reputation. It quickly was realized that this was going to be one of the most hazardous missions civilian aircrews had been called upon to perform, perhaps since the airdrops to the French, at Dien Bien Phu in 1954. The ill-fated "Cambodian Ricelift" was terminated, when it was reported that KR forces, had overun Phnom Penh's Pochentong airport.
