first sighting!

It's not exactly the Modern World, but:

My first copies of Flying Tigers: Claire Chennault and His American Volunteers came down the driveway at 6:30 Friday evening. HarperCollins has done a fine job with the book. Even the photos look crisp and clear--always an anxious moment in 21st century publishing, with its fondness for putting the illustrations on the same page as the text, rather than separate them out on glossy paper.

As always, Amazon has the lowball price. If you need a signed copy, or want to learn more about the book, go to That's where you'll find the bibliography, detailed source notes, and supplementary information as well.

Blue skies! -- Dan Ford
