Flying Tiger: Chennault of China by Robert Lee Scott( Book )

12 editions published between 1959 and 1973 in English and Undetermined and held by 865 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is an excellent story of one of the rennaisance men of aviation, a man who single-handedly changed the way we fight in the air: from tactics to early warning networks. To the Chinese, the hawk-faced, leather-skinned American was "Chennote Chiang Chun," and his men were "Tigers"--The famous Flying Tigers who plunged into China in 1941 to help in the desperate struggle against the invading Japanese. They were only a handful of men with a hundred outmoded planes, but their leader was one of the most daring and ingenious men who ever flew in war. Crusty and cantankerous, worshipped by his men, Claire Chennault rapidly created one of the most effective fighting units of all time. Chennault was handcuffed almost from the start, being labeled as a maverick and cast aside much too early in a career that would eventually transform itself into the world of civilian air transportation with the flying tiger line. General Scott, who served under Chennault in China, deals here, most interestingly, with the military exploits of his commanding officer and also with the bitter political conflicts that developed with General Stilwell
God is my co-pilot by Robert Lee Scott( Book )

43 editions published between 1943 and 2002 in 4 languages and held by 808 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

God is my Co-Pilot is the personal narrative of a man who has had one of the outstanding careers in American aviation. After Pearl Harbor, when he was marked too old for combat flying at 34, Colonel Robert L. Scott, Jr. refused to abandon his dream of a "mission against Tokyo." He did not ever fly against Tokyo, but over the Burma Road, and in enemy-occupied China he compiled a brilliant record as group commander of General Chennault's fighter forces--the dedicated veterans of the American Volunteer Group in China. The lives of the men in the group are crammed with excitement, hopes and frustrations, tragedy and humor. It was the first book to recount for Americans the daring and skill of their wartime pilots, an enormous best-seller, one of the really great stories of military aviation

Six P-40 fighters come shrieking out of the sun, guns blazing. They're outnumbered and outgunned by the 18 enemy Zeros below them. But they won't be outfought.

Fighting to keep the critical Burma Road supply line open, Scott becomes an ace. He comes to realize what many flyers know: up in the heavens, he is not alone
