Jim Gordon commands a unit of the famed Flying Tigers, the American Volunteer Group which fought the Japanese in China before America’s entry into World War II. Gordon must send his outnumbered band of fighter pilots out against overwhelming odds while juggling the disparate personalities and problems of his fellow flyers. In particular, he must handle the difficulties created by a reckless hot-shot pilot named Woody Jason, who not only wants to fight a one-man war but to waltz off with Gordon’s girlfriend.

User Reviews: Several friends of mine flew with the AVG. One of them who attended the premiere (c. October ’42) recalls that he and a couple other Tigers were so embarrassed by the film that they were caught sneaking out of the theater.
