The older English-language historiography on the KMT was written during Cold War and during a time when primary documentary sources were not very accessible for Westerners. The passage of time has loosened those limitations--and the interesting thing is, the PRC government today actually has a positive image of the KMT and Chiang in regards to the war against Japan!

Yep.

Going through this on the side of my China theatre tomes as a "light reading" break.

I have a couple big ones on the go (the two posted before this). This is a super "light read" for me, since I'm already pretty familiar with the G4M tech stuff. It will take me a while to get through the Chiang Kai-shek bio and the book on south China, haha.

This is a pretty good read on thee various major revolutions in military affairs since the 1400's and why certain countries were able to benefit at the expense of others. The ending is a little dated however.

Any suggestions on medieval Russian history and its folklore, which has interested me thanks to Viktor Vasnetsov's painting

If it's anything like a bridge too far it will be excellent
