From the Back Cover
Harvey came back, and with him Little Oley. They had a jeep and the Ford truck with "RAF" still painted on it, loaded with cases of whiskey and gin, cigarettes, boxes of sugar, tins of hard candy and biscuits. "Loot," said Harvey. "And food for the AVG."
Olga Greenlaw joined the Flying Tigers because her husband did. She soon became the keeper of the group's War Diary, a sex symbol, and the surrogate mother of a band of lonely American pilots. In April 1942, as Burma crumbled before the Japanese onslaught, she was nearly trapped in Lashio. This is her story, as only she could have told it.
