About the book:

Barbara W. Tuchman won her second Pulitzer Prize for this nonfiction masterpiecean authoritative work of history that recounts the birth of modern China through the eyes of one extraordinary American.
General Joseph W. Stilwell was a man who loved China deeply, spoke its language, and knew its people as few Americans ever have. Barbara W. Tuchmans groundbreaking narrative follows Stilwell from the time he arrived in China during the Revolution of 1911, through his tours of duty in Peking and Tientsin in the 1920s and 30s, to his return as theater commander in World War II, when the Nationalist government faced attack from both Japanese invaders and Communist insurgents. Peopled by warlords, ambassadors, missionaries, and the spiritual heir to the Empress Dowager, this classic biography of the cantankerous but level-headed Vinegar Joe sparkles with Tuchmans genius for animating the people who shaped history.
Praise for Stilwell and the American Experience in China
Tuchmans best book . . . so large in scope, so crammed with information, so clear in exposition, so assured in tone that one is tempted to say it is not a book but an education.The New Yorker
The most interesting and informative book on U.S.China relations . . . a brilliant, lucid and authentic account.The Nation
A fantastic and complex story finely told.The New York Times Book Review
