Join us on Saturday, February 15 for a 30-minute talk with FHCAM docent Ron Risdon who will provide insight into the Second World War in China.  Ron’s talk will explore the formation of the American Volunteer Group or “Flying Tigers” and the combat tactics developed by their leader Claire Chennault.  Ron will also examine the significance of the trans-Himalayan supply route, nicknamed “the Hump,” to the Allied war effort in China.  Finally, Ron will consider the aftermath of the war in China and some of the observations made by many of its key players in the wake of the conflict. If you’re interested in World War II you won’t want to miss this talk.
