Tale of a Tiger

Tale of a Tiger
I've always thought that R.T. Smith's diary was one of the best books about the Flying Tigers. Many photographs too. R.T. published the book himself and used to sell it at airshows and by mail. (I got one of the early copies and used it as a resource and a reference while writing my history of the AVG. Because it was a facsimile of the original, I knew it hadn't been edited for publication, as most diaries unfortunately are.)

Brad Smith has copies of his dad's book, priced at $30 for unsigned copies and $40 for signed copies, plus postage. For U.S. addresses, postage comes to $4.85-$8.55 for Priority Mail (depending on distance) or $2.23 for Media Mail. If you want a copy, send email to brad_smith@earthlink.net or click here.

Amazon often has used ("Marketplace") copies of the book for sale, some of them signed by R.T. Click here to check out what's available.
