     "Through Hells Gate to Shanghai"   is a fascinating narrative and true history of the 10th Combat Cargo Squadron, 3rd Combat Cargo Group, China-India-Burma, 1944-1946.  In an easy to read and entertaining way, this book documents the month by month story of the men and their missions

    This book tell the reader about the squadron's actions in the Imphal Valley campaign, "...Where green kids... Sent to war untrained...made history hauling steel pipe for the gas line to China - Japanese Zero attacks on unarmed C-47 transports - grossly overloaded transport airplanes carrying heavy equipment needed to build the Stillwell Road and forward airstrip's -  O.S.S. missions behind enemy lines - bizarre Hump flights through thunderstorms, hail, ice and fear!  The story tells about  happy days and sad days - not all the men came back
