A Brief History of The Flying Tigers
American Volunteer Group - Chinese Air Force
WITH RECOLLECTIONS AND COMMENTS BY GENERAL CLAIRE LEE CHENNAULT
In April, 1937, Claire L. Chennault, then a captain in the United States Army Air Corps, retired from active duty and accepted an offer from Madame Chiang Kai-shek for a three month mission to China to make a confidential survey of the Chinese Air Force. At that time China and Japan were on the verge of war and the fledgling Chinese Air Force was beset by internal problems and torn between American and Italian influence.
