Title: CI Lecture: "Flying Tigers in China during WWII" by Daniel Jackson
Date: Thu. Feb 25, 2016
Time: 6:00 PM - 7:00 PM

The Flying Tigers (American pilots) are well known to Chinese and constitute a sweet memory in Sino-American history during World War II. The lecture is based on Daniel Jackson's two books and his ongoing research on the Flying Tigers and related operations in China during WWII. Mr. Jackson's books are The Forgotten Squadron: The 449th Fighter Squadron in World War II - Flying P-38s with the Flying Tigers (2010) and Famine, Sword, and Fire: The Liberation of Southwest China in World War II (2015).

Daniel Jackson is a Special Operations pilot with over one thousand combat hours flown on more than two hundred missions. He grew up in Colorado Springs, Colorado, and graduated from the Air Force Academy in 2009 with a Bachelor's Degree in Military History and a minor in Chinese Language. He currently lives near Pensacola, Florida, with his beautiful wife Brianna.

The lecture is co-sponsored by the USF Confucius Institute and the Department of History.
