Riassunto: 'Vinegar Joe' Stilwell, the general who was the American commander in the China-Burma-India theatre of World War II, had a deep love of China. The Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Guns of August, Barbara Tuchman, combines a fascinating narrative of America's relationship with China from the fall of the Manchu Dynasty through to the rise of Mao Tse-Tung with an intimate biography of Vinegar Joe. Stilwell loved China deeply, spoke its languages and understood its people as few Westerners have. Tuchman traces his life from his first visit during the 1911 Revolution through the Second World War to his confrontation with Chiang Kai-shek. Entwined with his fortunes is the story of American and British foreign policy in the Far East.
L'autore: Barbara Tuchman (1912-1989) was one of America's foremost popular historians since the war. Winner of the Pulitzer Prize for The Guns of August and The Zimmermann Telegram. A master of detail with a powerful grasp of complex historical issues Tuchman's great style brings the past vividly to life.
