KIRKUS REVIEW

A Texan from Glendale, Calif., tells of his six years service flying for the Chinese, first as pilot for Chang Hsueh-Liang, the Young Marshall, until the kidnapping of Chiang Kai-Shek sent the Young Marshal to jail, and then as pilot for the Generalissimo, and instructor of bombardment. This is the story of rushing messages, flying food, supplies, officers, foreign officials, of reconaissance, of flying difficulties, troubles with officials. Learning to love the country he thought he hated, the author praises Chinese courage, endurance and determination, has many inside stories of incidents and people, and informs strategically about Chinese and Jap air fighting.
