Summary:Begins with an examination of the Manchurian Incident of 1931, when Japan took advantage of civil war in China to invade and establish a Japanese regime. Meanwhile Mao and Chiang fought each other and the Soviet Union engineered a rapprochement between the two warring Chinese sides. Examines the various motives of other countries in supporting China against Japan, and supporting one side against the other within China.
