Editorial Reviews


"A spirited and personal account" -- The New Yorker 

"All about the Mexican-born beauty who helped create the myth of the Flying Tigers." -- Annals of the Flying Tigers online

"An authoritative, gusty, and true-to-life story of the AVG" -- Leland Stowe, They Shall Not Sleep

"Mrs. Greenlaw has brought [the Flying Tigers] to lusty life with injections of her world-wise personality" -- New York Times Book Review 

"She was in a man's world, playing a man's game, doing her share to make a great undertaking worthwhile" -- San Francisco Chronicle

From the Back Cover

Perhaps someone got to sleep that last night in Lashio, but I didn't. There was no use trying. The activity going on all over the dirty little town was frenzied and noisy: people shouting and running around in the rain, repairing tires and motors, loading trucks and all sorts of vehicles in frantic haste and confusion. This was the last chance to escape. In a few hours it would all be over. 

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.
