Fallen Tigers: The Fate of America's Missing Airmen in China during World War II - History of Military Aviation (Hardback)Dan Jackson (author)
- Publication abandoned
The author scoured thousands of pages of official reports to build a comprehensive database of every China-based American airman reported missing on combat missions during the war. Memoirs, wartime diaries, and dozens of interviews with veterans--both American and Chinese--overlay this core of thorough historical research with compelling personal narratives. The fate of these men is an incredible story of survival in the midst of a brutal war; it is a touching story of cooperation between the United States and China--including with Mao Zedong's Communists. Fallen Tigers is not just a thrilling historical drama, it is of pressing importance for our time and the United States' relationship with the rising Chinese superpower.
