Authors Sam Kleiner and James M. Scott talked about the use of U.S. air power in Asia at both the beginning and end of World War II. Mr. Kleiner looked at the First American Volunteer Group -- better known as the Flying Tigers -- who battled the Japanese in China even before the Pearl Harbor attack. Mr. Scott detailed the B-29 air campaigns against mainland Japan, including the March 1945 firebombing of Tokyo -- considered the single most destructive bombing raid in history. This discussion was part of an annual conference hosted by the National World War II Museum, which provided this video. close
