Part two-Led by Claire Chennault, the Flying Tigers were a group of American pilots who originally signed as mercenaries for China in 1941 to fight Japanese aggression in China and Burma. Chennault had worked to build China's air force since 1937 when the Japanese invaded China and seized Shanghai and Nanking, but finally received help from FDR in 1941 in the form of planes and pilots. Chennault had the answer for the fast Japanese Zero plane- but it would take training and discipline to make sure his men learned it. When they did, it provided the first good news since the invasion of Pearl Harbor and listed American and Chinese morale. Voices AVG Cols Tex Hikk, Ed Rector, Dick Rossi. East Asia Media.
