A rare, firsthand account of the rescue mission to aid the biggest air-supply of World War II. Lt. William Diebold served in the Army’s Air Transport Command in the China-Burma-India theater, saving the lives of the men who flew the Hump to keep allied China supplied against Imperial Japan. Often flying in zero-visibility, many pilots went down over the eastern Himalayas. Those who survived Bill Diebold rescued. Rich with war slang, wisecracks, and old-fashioned phrases, Diebold’s story is all the more extraordinary for its authentic voice and represents the stories of many men that have never been told. Here is a compelling tale of courage in the wild.
