who weren't around during what our generation called simply "the war" these photos and theirdescriptions from LIFE magazine will hopefully be of interest.

The Curtiss P-40 "Warhawk" played heavilly in "flying the hump" from Burma into China in support of Chinese Nationalist forces against the Japanese aggressors. Some may recognize the plane but few know this story.

Enjoy!

John,



circa 1942 IIRC. The Japanese were brutalizing China i.e. The Rape of Nanking etc.

I'll make no apologies for the use of the word "Jap" in the article although Jap is no longer PC in today's world. The article was in fact written in 1942; what would you expect?

Anti-Japanese sentiment was quite evident in the US LONG before Pearl Harbor but that's another story...............................

Ya' betcha, young man. I've been fascinated with aviation since I was a tad growing up in WWII times. The article from LIFE magazine that I posted came long before television and videos. LIFE magazine told us the stories in pictorial form and we listened to the radio to catch the latest war news.
