    Great Storytelling on a Great Subject

    Daniel Ford's non-fiction history the Flying Tigers is in a class by itself, and his novel 'Remains' continues his work of reminding us that the members of the American Volunteer Group were real men who became heroes under the worst imaginable conditions. <p>His latest work, a novel, does a great job of creating the feel of Burma in 1941-42. The characters of Fitz and Blackie are all the more believable for their foibles and youthful innocence as the grim reality of war overtakes them. Mr. Ford writes equally well describing dogfights over Rangoon or social clashes in the caste-divided clubs below. 'Remains', like his earlier non-fiction work on the Tigers, is a grittier but ultimately more heroic flip side to the John Wayne-fantasy versions of these remarkable but all too human warriors. <p>I read the original downloaded version of this book and I'm delighted to see it in hard copy. I highly recommend it to anyone even slightly interested in the AVG, the period, the East or aviation. <p>An absolute must-have for Flying Tiger buffs.

    The Flying Tigers get their due!

    Here's a story where the famous mercenary pilots of World War II are portrayed as heroes with feet of clay. An utterly convincing yarn about the Flying Tigers, the British overlords of Burma, and the Japanese pilots who met the Tigers in aerial combat. I look forward to the movie!
