The History and Significance of the Flying Tigers
The Flying Tigers, officially known as the American Volunteer Group (AVG), were a group of American pilots who volunteered to assist China in their fight against Japanese forces. Formed in 1941, prior to the U.S. entry into World War II, the Flying Tigers played a vital role in defending China from Japanese aggression.
Under the command of Claire Lee Chennault, a renowned aviator and military strategist, the Flying Tigers achieved remarkable successes, disrupting enemy supply lines and providing essential air support. Their combat record during the Pacific War was unparalleled, as they consistently demonstrated their skill and bravery in the face of overwhelming odds.
