"Bold Venture undoubtedly emerges as a catchy book focusing on a topic that has not been fully explored. . . . For anyone interested in this kind of dramatic aviation history with a human face . . . it's worth investing a few dollars and a few hours to read about what happened in the sky above Hong Kong from 1942 through 1945."--Stone & Stone: Second World War Books-- (3/24/2019 12:00:00 AM)

"This book about an important and overlooked aspect of USAAF operations in China during World War II takes us inside prison camps where POWs cheered and feared the American bombers appearing over Hong Kong through long, dark years.
