Contact Tales from the Himalayas on Messenger. A fearless explorer, an exceptional spy for India, a skilled geographer and a seeker of adventure, Nain Singh Rawat lives on in history books as one of the greatest explorers in the continent.

This is a book of letters written to Carl Frey Constein, author of the WWII memoir Born to Fly the Hump. Most of the letters are from pilots and crew who also served in the China-Burma-India Theater of Operations. They tell of crashes and bailouts over the Himalayas and Burma, of mammoth thunderstorms and engine failures, of bombing runs out of China, of airdrops behind enemy lines.Other CBI veterans who served on the ground tell of rugged conditions in the high mountains of China and the dense jungles of Burma, or in the monsoons and heat of India. Wives and widows have written poignant, sincere letters of appreciation.The CBI was the theater of history's first military airlift, General Chennault's Flying Tigers, General Vinegar Joe Stilwell, Merrill's Marauders and Wingate's Chindits, the Burma Road. The letters illuminate the diversity and hardships of the CBI, where 350,000 Americans fought their war - and which history has all but overlooked.

This collection of letters is chock-full of adventure and great historical recollections concerning WW2 flying experiences (focused on the CBI) and conditions in China, Burma, and India in those years. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. This is a book that I truly wished was three times as long. Thank you, Dr. Constein, for inspiring these letters and collecting/publishing them! I wish there were many more CBI books of this same type, with more contributions from any and all participants in that lesser-known area of the War. To veterans and their family members who possess Wartime memorabilia -- please make those stories (and photos) public. It is a legacy that should be shared.

Interesting accounts from those who actually served in CBI. Loved the personal touch their stories added.

A great read. In my search to find out more of what my Dad, a former CBI pilot who also flew the Hump went through in WWII, I found this book exceeded my expectations. I came away with a clear, concise awareness of recurrent events eye witnessed by other pilots of what he must have experienced while flying over the mighty Himalayas.

Bought this book for my husband as he was a "Hump" pilot during WWII and crashed over the Hump (parachuted) and walked out of the Himalayas--his crew safe and sound helped by Chinese. He enjoyed the stories--he had written a story of his experiences, but just family has read it. Book would only appeal to WWII buffs and/or pilots I think. June Snowden
