Pilots in Peril!: The Untold Story of U.S. Pilots Who Braved "the Hump" in World War II

Historian Theodore White called it "the most dangerous, terrifying, barbarous aerial transport run in the world…the skyway to Hell." The Hump was a perilous 500-mile flight path across the eastern Himalayan Mountains many U.S. pilots flew during World War II in order to keep the Allies well-supplied in China. Using personal accounts from pilots, rescuers, and U.S. Air Force staff, this fast-paced narrative puts young readers in the cockpit alongside some of the war’s bravest pilots.
