Description

This volume reveals the little-known story of the 90-year presence of American forces in China until the fall of Peking in 1941.

Included is coverage of the first operations on the Pearl River in 1856 as well as US involvement in the Boxer Rebellion of 1900.

As China entered a chaotic period in her history, known as the years of the Warlord, American marines also participated in numerous small-scale amphibious landings.

Finally, during the later Sino-Japanese War and early into World War II, US volunteers of the Flying Tigers became renowned for their combat missions in support of Chinese Nationalist forces, and their aerial duels are also recounted by the author John P.

Langellier, who has spent several years researching the subject in the US and China.

Discover the history of these various actions and the different services involved, recreated in color artwork and illustrated with rare, previously unpublished photographs.
