“The Flying Tigers: The Untold Story of the American Pilots Who Waged a Secret War Against Japan” is a nonfiction book written by Daniel Ford. It tells the story of the American Volunteer Group (AVG), better known as the Flying Tigers, and their role in the early days of World War II.
The book provides a detailed look at the history of the AVG, from its creation in 1941 to its eventual integration into the U.S. Army Air Forces. Ford does an excellent job of describing the training and tactics used by the AVG pilots and the impact of their work on the war effort. The book also explores the personal experiences of the pilots, giving the reader a sense of what it was like to be a part of the group.
One of the book’s strengths is Ford’s ability to weave together the historical context of the war with the personal stories of the pilots. The reader is able to understand the challenges and successes of the AVG while getting to know the pilots who made it happen. The book also provides an in-depth look at the technology and tactics used by the AVG during the war, making it an interesting read for those interested in military and aviation history.
The book is well-researched and well-written, and Ford does an excellent job of bringing the story of the Flying Tigers to life. The book is an excellent read for anyone interested in the history of World War II, the American Volunteer Group, or anyone looking for a thrilling and engaging story about a little-known but important piece of history. If you haven’t read this book, I highly recommend it.
