  • Tales of the Flying Tigers: Five Books about the American Volunteer Group, Mercenary Heroes of Burma and China

    "What God abandoned, these defended / And saved the sum of things for pay"In the bleak winter of 1941-1942, no American or British force could stem the tide in Southeast Asia, as the Philippines, Thailand, Malaya, and Singapore fell to the victorious Japanese. Only in Burma was there a ray of hope. There, over beleaguered Rangoon, a few dozen Americans clawed Japanese warplanes from the sky for a cash bounty from the Chinese government. Wearing mismatched uniforms, with Chinese insignia, and flying cast-off fighter planes, they did what no other air force seemed able to do, and won immortality as the Flying Tigers.Daniel Ford wrote the definitive history of the American Volunteer Group, as it was formally known. Here, he has collected five e-books about the Flying Tigers into an omnibus that details the AVG's planes, pilots, and history as remembered in the United States and in Japan. An essential collection for every admirer of the Flying Tigers.

  • The Lady and the Tigers: The Story of the Remarkable Woman Who Served with the Flying Tigers in Burma and China, 1941-1942

    Olga Greenlaw kept the War Diary of the American Volunteer Group--the Flying Tigers--while those gallant mercenaries defended Burma and China from Japanese aggression during the opening months of the Pacific War. Returning to the United States in 1942, she wrote 'The Lady and the Tigers', which war correspondent Leland Stowe hailed as "an authoritative, gutsy and true to life story of the AVG." Out of print for more than half a century, her book has now been brought up to date by Daniel Ford, author of 'Flying Tigers: Claire Chennault and His American Volunteers'. What's more, Ford explains for the first time where Olga and Harvey Greenlaw came from, how they became caught up in the saga of the Flying Tigers, and what happened to them after their tumultuous year with the AVG. Updated 2012 with photographs from the print edition.

  • 100 Hawks for China: The Story of the Shark-Nosed P-40 That Made the Flying Tigers Famous (Tales of the Flying Tigers Book 2)

    At the outbreak of war, the Curtiss P-40 was America's best fighter plane, though outclassed by the British Spitfire, the German Messerschmitt 109, and probably the Japanese Zero. But the United States could build them by the thousand. First France, then Britain, and finally China tried desperately to buy the shark-faced Curtiss fighter--a story that historian Daniel Ford tells here with grace and humor. In the end, China was loaned the money to buy 100 planes from a Curtiss production run of "Tomahawks," as the P-40 was known to the Royal Air Force. China also hired 100 pilots to fly them. The result was the American Volunteer Group--the "Flying Tigers" who won immortality over the rice fields of Burma and the mountains of southwestern China from December 1941 to July 1942. This fascinating tribute to the P-40 also contains a facsimile of the RAF Pilot's Manual for the Tomahawk, annotated by AVG veteran Erik Shilling, along with a list of the 100 Hawks and what is known about each of them. Good reading for Flying Tiger buffs, and an essential resource for flight simmers.
