RE: The Hidden History of the Korean War
An interesting but brief conversation occured this weekend.
Chaing was planning to counterattack mainland China with US help before
Chennault was already planning to equip with F84's with the new CATF.
All these plans were moving forward until Korea. They already had P51's
I know that there were clandestine flights over China by Chaings airforce.
I would like to get more info on the technical peace Formosa and China had.
Even during Korea, China keeped a strong force across from Formosa.
No doubt there were skirmishes. Some of this timed with action in Korea.
In the mid to late 50's the two airforces had some fierce fights.
Mostly F86 vs Mig17. But there were a couple F47 Tunderbolts battles
against the Migs too.

Well, maybe so, but the conclusion depends on how you perceive the
question. Most of us in America felt, at the time, that the invasion of
Formosa by the Chinese Communists was something we were willing to use force
No matter how you view them, South Korea and Formosa have been much more
successful than their counterparts. Maybe it helps to have us as a friend
