Editorial Reviews


"Every page contains a new tidbit of information and rich, long-forgotten detail.... A riveting read." -- World War II History

"Having been a fan of the Flying Tigers since I saw the John Wayne movie as a kid, I picked up this updated version of their impressive combat history. One of the most interesting aspects of Ford's well-researched book is its in-depth coverage of 1st American Volunteer Group (AVG) personnel, an odd lot of rugged individualists. -- Col. Gordon Keiser, United States Naval Institute Proceedings

"A first-rate history." -- Boston Globe

"A major contribution to the history of the air war in the Pacific." -- Don Lopez, US Army 23rd Fighter Group Flying Tigers

"Admirable--a readable book based on sound sources. Expect a few surprises." -- Air Power Historian

"Meticulously researched, carefully documented." -- Washington Times

"Totally engrossing--just like reliving those days fifty years ago." -- Robert Neale, AVG 1st Squadron

"War history as it should be written." -- The Hook

"Without question, the most readable and complete account of the AVG yet written." -- Air & Space / Smithsonian

"In this vivid and fact-filled historical account of aerial combat, Daniel Ford completely updates and revises his 1991 work describing the extraordinary accomplishments of the pilots and support crews of the 1st American Volunteer Group (AVG) in the earliest days of World War II.... Ford closes his book with these words: "More than sixty years ago, in their incandescent youth, they were heroes to a nation that needed heroes. . . . All honor to them." Indeed, and acclaim to Daniel Ford for his thorough telling of an eventful war in the air, one that should be remembered." -- William Calhoun
