"On july 23, 1941, some five months before the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor, President Roosevelt signed a secret executive order authorizing the bombing of Tokyo and other Japanese cities. This astounding mission never came off, but what resulted was America's first venture into shadowy area of covert operations against a foreign power."

"The author of this extraordinary plan was the cantankerous, opinionated, and controversial ex-Army captain, Claire Lee Chennault. Though Roosevelt was persuaded to postpone this plan, he gave Chennault a consolation prize-an air force of 100 fighter planes and the men to fly them. Thus, the Flying Tigers outfit was born."

"Chennault pulled together this motley crew of undisciplined, hard-drinking men and built the most successful and unorthodox outfit of World War II."

"Drawing on unpublished diaries of AVG members, persona interviews, material from military archives, Chennault's personal papers and additional secondary sources, Duane Schultz writes a fascinating and definitive account of Chennault and his legendary pilots."

This hardcover with dustjacket was published by St Martin's Press in 1987.
