About This Item

University Park, Illinois, U.S.A.: Osprey Pub Co, 2005. New book, 48 pages, MAA424. Although the Chinese contribution to Allied victory in World War II is often ignored, China fought the Japanese Empire for far longer than any other belligerent nation. By the time that the Sino-Japanese War became absorbed into the wider conflict at the end of 1941, Chinese armies had already suffered huge casualties and half the country had been lost. By fighting on with Allied support, China tied down a million Japanese troops. After Japan’s defeat in 1945, China was immediately plunged back into civil war between Chiang Kai-shek’s Nationalists and Mao Tse-tung’s Communists; and the latter’s victory in 1949 changed the world for the rest of the 20th century and beyond. Covers: Background, Chronology, The Chinese Army in 1937, The Sino-Japanese War 1937-45, The Chinese Army 1942-45, Uniforms 1937-45, Uniforms 1946-49. Soft Cover. As New. Illus. by Walsh, Stephen. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.

Synopsis

Philip Jowett was born in Leeds in 1961 and has been interested in military history for as long as he can remember. His first Osprey book was the ground-breaking Men-at-Arms 306: ‘Chinese Civil War Armies 1911–49’; he has since published a three-part sequence on the Italian Army 1940–45 (Men-at-Arms volumes 340, 349 & 353). A rugby league enthusiast and amateur genealogist, he is married and lives in Lincolnshire, UK.
