General Chiang Kai-Shek: The Account of the Fortnight in Sian When the Fate of China Hung in the Balance

Excerpt

For the sheer thrill of danger, romance, calm courage and dramatic climax, these two documents have all the fascinating interest of a historical novel. But this is immensely intensified when it is realized that they are the authoritative records of actual happenings only a few months ago while the fate of a great nation was literally trembling in the balance and the whole world was awaiting the outcome with puzzled bewilderment and anxious forebodings. Mme Chiang describes her part in this sensational occurrence while the incidents are still fresh in her memory and in doing so unconsciously reveals a wifely devotion, a woman's intuitive understanding of the basic issues and a superb heroism which are the more convincing because written with so objective a purpose to give the simple facts.

General Chiang has kept a diary for many years . . .
