KIRKUS REVIEW

A book that all who appreciated Red Star Over China will want to read and own, for this is a book of far-reaching significance, not only in the scope of the subject -- a record of the Sino-Japanese War, a close-up picture of the personalities that are concerned (the portraits of China's Lawrence, a New Zealander named Alley, is particularly fresh), an analysis of the importance of relations between China and the U.S., China and England, China and Russia -- but it is also a tribute to the undying spirit of a great people, a people defeated on all tangible fronts, but still unbeaten. He outlines a program for this country, sharper strictures on trade with Japan, support of China, Readable, challenging, informative.
