Summary
In Search of Ghosts is a memoir of a former Flying Tiger returning to China in search of his past as a 19-year-old B-25 tail gunner fighting the Japanese during WW II in 1944-45. Traveling alone to places he had been during the war and to the small village where he spent a year fighting the Japanese, the author recalls his combat experiences and his meetings with John Birch and Ho Chi Minh. He explains his empathy for the Chinese people in their impoverished condition during the war as compared to their improved lives in the year prior to the Tiananmen Square massacre. An excellent comparison between China's past and present and a vision of its hope for the future
