China after Seven Years of War

Excerpt

This book is designed to give a picture of several aspects of Chinese life and China's struggle against aggression after seven years of war. It was written in Chungking, in a bomb- damaged building with walls of mud and bamboo, floor of rough planks, and windows covered with torn paper.

It tells of the heroism of Chinese flyers and infantrymen fighting side by side with their American allies, of the hardships endured by Government employees who live with their wives and children in straw-thatched cottages around the buildings in which they work, of the efforts of dramatists and novelists who have used literature as a weapon to fight the Japanese. It depicts the life of students in the refugee universities, describes the curious and indestructible city of Chungking and gives the story of the aviators who maintain a thin line of communication between China and the world beyond the blockade.

No book could tell more than a fraction of the story of China, but it is hoped that this one will give readers a better understanding of the member of the United Nations which has fought longer than any other against the forces of terror and of evil.
