    In 1943, two USAAF officers were given the job of organizing an air assault detachment to assist British commandos in Burma. It was a new kind of fighting force using airborne guerrilla tactics to cause disruption and confusion behind enemy lines. Former US Air Force pilot Y'Blood describes how the unit, using an array of light planes, fighters, helicopters, cargo aircraft and about 500 men, contributed to the ultimate defeat of the Japanese in Burma.
