This unprecedented volume contains the memoirs of a Chinese diplomat as he remembers the events surrounding World War II. Concerned that the West is basically ignorant about what occurred in China during the 1930s and 1940s, Dr. Li, former Major General in the Chinese Nationalist Army and one time aide de camp of Acting President General Li Tsungjen, recounts personal memories of Generalissimo Chiang Kai-shek. Dr. Li, who is nevertheless staunchly anti-Communist, maintains that China could not have successfully resisted the Japanese conquest without Chiang's leadership. This is a highly personal memoir, shaped by his excellent knowledge of contemporary history, and a genuine attempt to place Chiang Kai-shek in his historical context.
