“Winston Churchill and the Flying Tigers: a new perspective on an American legend”: a lecture by Eugenie Buchan
November 15, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Please join the National Churchill Library and Center as we welcome Eugenie Buchan, author of A Few Planes for China: The Birth of the Flying Tigers. In the first half of 1942 the Flying Tigers took to the skies to fight the Japanese over Burma and China. They rarely had more than forty planes fit to fly but managed to bring down close to 300 enemy aircraft. Refreshments will be served.
