THE REAL FLYING TIGERS brings the whole story to light. Find out how the policies of the U.S. and Chinese Governments helped contribute to the confusion surrounding the Tigers today. See rare footage of the aviators and their rugged P-40s in action. Led by General Claire Lee Chennault, they established records that have never been equaled in the annals of aerial warfare. Here, military scholars and historians reveal why they were so successful, and we'll hear from some of the surviving Tigers about their overlooked war.
