My Quest to Fly
Memories and Photos of China with the American and Chinese Air Forces, 1936-1940

by
Sebie Biggs Smith

During his years as a military adviser to the Chinese National Air Force, Sebie Smith took thousands of photos and kept a daily journal. Those records make possible this true story of the 91-year-old retired Air Force colonel, whose mechanical expertise landed him in China with Madame Chaing Kai-shek and his friend CLaire Chennault in the years leading up to World War II. Part memoir, part adventure story. . .this book is a valuable addition to aviation literature and a fascinating, enjoyable read.
