Mrs. Rebecca Chan Chung (1920-2011) was a Hong Kong nursing educator and a US veteran of World War II with the Flying Tigers, US Army and China National Aviation Corporation. Her wartime work as a nurse included flying over the Hump (the Himalayas), which was the dangerous and strategic route that linked China and the outside world after Japan cut off the Burma Road. The book covers the wartime experience of her husband, Mr. Leslie Wah-Leung Chung (1917-2009), a Hong Kong educator and a member of the Hong Kong Volunteers Defense Corps during the Japanese invasion in World War II. She also shares the experience of her father, Mr. Po-Yin Chan (1883-1965), a participant of the 1911 Chinese Revolution under Dr. Sun Yat Sen and a Senator of Guangzhou, China, after the Revolution.
Rebecca’s great-grandfather, Rev. Hok Chau, was the first Chinese ordained minister of the Methodist Church in Southern China, thus the book also discusses aspects of the history of Christianity in China and Hong Kong. Moreover, Rebecca’s mother, Dr. Lee Sun Chau (1890-1979) was one of the first female doctors of Western Medicine in China, and the book also covers aspects of the history of Western Medicine in China and the history of Nursing in Hong Kong from the 1920s-1970s.
