Osprey Men-at-Arms 424 : The Chinese Army 1937-1949 : World War II and Civil War

China fought the Japanese Empire for far longer than any other nation and the Chinese contribution to Allied victory in World War II is often ignored. 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. Text by Philip Jowett with illustrations by Stephen Walsh.
