SOLDIERS OF THE WHITE SUN
The Chinese Army at War 1937-1949
Autore: Philip Jowett
Corredato da oltre 500 immagini a colori e in bianco e nero il libro traccia la storia dell'esercito nazionalista cinese nonchè tutte le campagne combattute tra il 1937 e la sua definitiva sconfitta nel 1949.
The Chinese Nationalist Army was at war almost continuously from 1931 until 1949 fighting first against the invading Japanese Imperial Army until 1945. This was followed by a four year civil war in which the Nationalist Army fought the Chinese Communists until its final defeat in 1949. Millions of Chinese soldiers fought and died during this eighteen years of conflict and their sacrifice has been largely overshadowed by the events of the Second World War. This new book presents in a large number of period images the history of the Chinese Nationalist Army and its campaigns.
