When I was writing the history of the American Volunteer Group in Burma and China in the opening months of the Second World War, I found myself turning again and again to Olga Greenlaw's gossipy book about her year with the Flying Tigers. The more I learned about the AVG, the more impressed I was with her account, which she wrote with the aid of the Group War Diary and her own personal diary of those hectic months. If she says that on such a day, such a pilot flew into such an airport, other sources always showed that she was right. Though it often reads like a Cosmopolitan article, therefore, her book is actually a serious history of America's most famous fighter group. Long out of print, I was able to get publishing rights and much additional information and photographs from her sister, who is still going strong at the age of 101. I'm delighted to be able to bring this important book to a new audience. Blue skies! -- Dan FordWas this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
