"[I]t is the most comprehensive introduction to the [military history of the Sino-Japanese War] currently available ... The articles provide a competent, detailed, strongly factual and authoritative account of the two main armies' strategy, tactics, doctrines, weaponry, equipment, training, indoctrination, combat effectiveness, discipline, logistics, communications, conscription methods, intelligence, force structure and command, and of the international environment. " - Gregor Benton, The China Journal "[The Battle for China] fills a major gap in the historiography of the Sino-Japanese War and makes a valuable contribution to our understanding of the modern experience of East Asia ... Historians should find this volume a much needed addition to their essential readings." - Ke-Wen Wang, Journal of World History "[The editors of The Battle for China] present to Western readers some of the best scholarship on the Sino-Japanese War by Chinese and Japanese historians, whose writings and publications previously were inaccessible to readers of English ... [T]his rich and well-researched volume ... Should serve as an indispensable reference for the study of World War II." - Qiang Zhai, Frontiers of History in China "[R]emarkably well organized ... In many ways, this book is a model of transnational scholarly collaboration ... [T]his volume belongs on the shelf of all students and scholars of East Asian, international, and military history." - Edward A. McCord, China Review International "In-depth studies of critical moments of the war, combined with a comprehensive and well-written narrative of the larger events, make it a valuable addition to the literature for both specialists and the general reader." - David Gordon, Pacific AffairsFrom the Publisher:
Winner of the 2012 Society for Military History Distinguished Book Award (non-US). Most studies of the Sino-Japanese War are presented from the perspective of the West. Departing from this tradition, The Battle for China brings together Chinese, Japanese, and Western scholars to provide a comprehensive and multifaceted overview of the military operations that shaped much of what happened in political, economic, and cultural realms. The volume's diverse contributors have taken pains to sustain a scholarly, dispassionate tone throughout their analyses of the course and the nature of military operations, from the Marco Polo Bridge Incident to the final campaigns of 1945. They present Western involvement in Sino-Japanese contexts, and establish the war's place in World War II and world history in general.
