-Evan Thomas, New York Times bestselling author of Sea of Thunder
"Illuminates the battles, personalities and personal lives of the Flying Tigers, a band of rag-tag pilots sure to enthrall general readers and military history buffs."
-Michael Punke, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Revenant
"The Flying Tigers is a meticulously researched work of history that reads like a thriller. Packed with characters that come off the pages, it draws the reader into a world of dare-devil flying and covert operations in China in the opening days of World War II. The Flying Tigers marks the debut of an incredibly talented new historian and is a must-read not only for World War II aficionados but for anyone who likes a good story. It is full of them."
-Amy Chua, Yale Law professor and New York Times bestselling author of Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother and Political Tribes
"As the United States navigates a complex and challenging relationship with China today, The Flying Tigers offers a vivid reminder that our two countries have pulled together in the past to meet shared threats. Sam Kleiner artfully tells the story of the forgotten World War II alliance, and the role of dynamic individuals in shaping it--and anyone interested in understanding America's relationship with China should delve into this gripping history."
-Jake Sullivan, Former National Security Adviser to the Vice President and Director of Policy Planning at the U.S. Department of State
"The Flying Tigers has it all: aerial guerrilla warfare, foreign intrigue, inspiring heroism, and a Hollywood-worthy cast of colorful misfits, rebels, and patriotic adventurers, all woven into an electrifying narrative."
--Thurston Clarke, author of Pearl Harbor Ghosts and The Last Campaign
"Sam Kleiner has bridged a critical gap in American military history with a gripping account of how the Roosevelt administration was secretly leading us into World War II a half-a-year before Pearl Harbor. This is a story with mercenaries, aerial dogfights, love affairs, burning cities and shadow diplomacy but more than that, this tells us how the U.S. got an early jump on its war against Imperial Japan at the beginning of the Pacific Century."
-Tom Zoellner, author of Uranium
