Microcampus is a journey of learning and self-exploration. Phase 0 marks the start of this journey. I will spend my 28 days in Xizhou in discovering how the Flying Tigers affected the people it was to protect. I chose this topic because World War II in Asia and the Pacific is a topic of high personal interest. Originally, I had a three topics to choose from. However, after thinking long and hard, I have chosen to research the topic of the Flying Tigers.
