(Air&Space / Smithsonian magazine) By the author of the definitive history of Claire Chennault and the AVG.

About the author

 Daniel Ford has spent a lifetime studying and writing about the wars of the past hundred years, from Ireland's war of liberation to America's invasions of Iraq and Afghanistan. A U.S. Army veteran and a reporter in Vietnam, he wrote the novel that was filmed as 'Go Tell the Spartans', starring Burt Lancaster. As a historian, he is best known for his prize-winning study of the American Volunteer Group--the gallant 'Flying Tigers' of the Second World War. Most recently, he turned to the 1939 invasion of Poland by Germany and Russia, through the eyes of a young girl whom he courted in later years. Most of his books and many shorter pieces are available for Amazon's Kindle ebook reader. Visit and sign up for a monthly newsletter about war, flying, and less important subjects.
