Review Text

Paperback reprint of a 20-year-old discussion, by one of the most accomplished American popular historians, of the every-thorny China question in American politics and war; as seen through a life of General Stilwell, aptly nicknamed 'Vinegar Joe' by his staff enemies, whom his soldiers followed gladly in some extra rough fighting in north Burma in 1942-5. Clearly written, necessarily controversial, highly informative. (Kirkus UK)show more
