May, 1942 . . . Thousands of refugees flee down the tortuous Burma Road toward Kunming, China to escape the advancing armored forces of Imperial Japan. With the armies of China devastated, it was evident that nothing but the winding Salween River at the bottom of the treacherous gorge could slow the enemy's surge toward the capitol city. After destroying the bridge behind them, those fleeing watched helplessly as the Japanese hastily started to construct a makeshift pontoon bridge. It appeared that China would face certain surrender if the enemy made it across. Hopes of an easy victory quickly began to fade though, when suddenly through the gorge range the echoes of snarling Allison engines, powering shark-mouthed P-40s of the legendary American Volunteer Group, better known as the Flying Tigers. With Tex Hill leading the charge, and with only a handful of men and planes, the AVG stopped the Japanese cold in the Salween River Gorge, and China would not fall.
