"Monumental. . . . The culmination of 35 years of research. . . . The finest English-language study written by a single author on modern Asian military history. Indeed, it is arguably a military history classic of any age and any language."
—Mark R. Peattie

"A masterpiece of narrative, documentation, and analysis."
