The Flying Tigers have received extensive media attention over the years, but the American presence in China during WWII extended far beyond the few famed pilots. Thousands of American troops worked to supply the Chinese Guomindong allies using a road that stretched from India through Burma. That land route ended in Kunming, China.
Joshua Taylor, my next door neighbor growing up, served in the United States army during WWII, running supplies through Southeast Asia to Southwest China. He sat down in his Brooklyn home with China Policy Pod to tell his story.
