Pressestimmen

This is one of thoe rare treats for aviation history enthusiasts: a book by a superb pilot who also happens to be a first-rate writer. -- Carl Molesworth, author of Sharks over China. Better than anyone else [Felix Smith] evokes the sights, smells, and sounds of China... China Pilot is a wonderful book. It belongs on the shelf of every admirer of Chennault and his unorthodox forces. Air & Space Smithsonian
