Generalissimo: Chiang Kai-shek and the China He Lost
Jonathan Fenby (au)
For more than two decades, Chiang Kai-shek, the Generalissimo of China, stood at the center of a turbulent period in the modern history of China. He rose to personify his country in the period between the fall of the Manchu Empire in 1911 & the Communist victory in 1949. Grabbing the mantle of the Nationalist revolution & gaining control of the Kuomintang party, he led its army in an attempt to defeat powerful warlords & propel the country towards unification, only to be confronted by the twin challenges of the Communists & the invading Japanese -- challenges which ultimately proved too great for even this ambitious man. This biography focuses on Chiangís extraordinary life up to & including the defeat by Mao Zedong in 1949. Illustrations.
