From the Publisher"Samson traces the career of this early prophet of air power who fought the Japanese and became involved in a number of controversies. After the war, Chennault continued to serve the Nationalist Chinese Government and, along with his Civilian Air Transport (CAT), provided a number of clandestine and unique air services to Asia. Samson, who served under Chennault in both the 14th Air Force and CAT, writes with affection. Recommended for most collections."
"Claire Lee Chennault was a fascinating man in a fascinating time in history. This book will go a long way toward ensuring him his deserved place in that history."
—Barry Goldwater, former United States senator, on Chennault (first edition of Flying Tiger)
