Summary
For decades, a major piece of World War II history has gone virtually unwritten. China was the fourth great ally--partner to the United States, the Soviet Union, and Great Britain--yet its drama of invasion, resistance, slaughter, and political intrigue remains little known in the West. In this emotionally gripping book, made possible through access to newly unsealed Chinese archives, Rana Mitter unfurls the story of China's World War II as never before and rewrites the larger history of the war in the process. He focuses his narrative on three towering leaders--Chiang Kai-shek, Mao Zedong, and the lesser-known collaborator Wang Jingwei--and extends the time line of the war back to 1937, when Japanese and Chinese troops began to clash, two years before Hitler invaded Poland
Summary
Made possible through access to newly unsealed Chinese archives, this riveting book tells the untold story of China's devastating eight-year-war of resistance against Japan in World War II, rewriting the larger history of the war in the process
