Olga Greenlaw kept the War Diary of the American Volunteer Group--the Flying Tigers--while those gallant mercenaries defended Burma and China from Japanese aggression during the opening months of the Pacific War. Returning to the United States in 1942, she wrote The Lady and the Tigers, which war correspondent Leland Stowe hailed as an authoritative, gutsy and true to life story of the AVG.
Out of print for more than half a century, her book has now been brought up to date by Daniel Ford, author of the AVG's definitive history, Flying Tigers: Claire Chennault and His American Volunteers. What's more, Ford explains for the first time where Olga and Harvey Greenlaw came from, how they became caught up in the saga of the Flying Tigers, and what happened to them after their tumultuous year with the AVG.
