From the Publisher

Barbara W. Tuchman won the Pulitzer Prize for Stilwell and the American Experience in China, 1911-45 in 1972. She uses the life of Joseph Stilwell, the military attache to China in 1935-39 and commander of United States forces and allied chief of staff to Chiang Kai-shek in 1942-44, to explore the history of China from the revolution of 1911 to the turmoil of World War II, when China''s Nationalist government faced attack from Japanese invaders and Communist insurgents. Her story is an account of both American relations with China and the experiences of one of our men on the ground. In the cantankerous but level-headed "Vinegar Joe," Tuchman found a subject who allowed her to perform, in the words of The National Review, "one of the historian''s most envied magic acts: conjoining a fine biography of a man with a fascinating epic story."

Format: Soft Cover

Publisher: Grove Press

Seller Comments:

9" 621 pages. "What new understanding have other historians produced in the years since Barbara Tuchman wrote? Perhaps the most illuminating study is Michael Schaller's 'The U.S. Crusade in China, 1938-1945', which uses hitherto secret government archives liberated under the Freedom of Information Act. Schaller's study only deepens the disillusion with American aims and action in wartime China that emerges so clearly from Tuchman's 'Stilwell'". Text is clean and tight except for name inside cover. Cover is free of creases. Book appears unread.
