In 1937 China was plunged into a horrific war with Japan that resulted in many millions of deaths and completely reshaped East Asia. Rana Mitter's book draws on a range of new sources to recreate China's experience of the conflict. Writing both about wartime leaders and ordinary people swept up in nightmarish times, he tells a story of terrible massacres, famines, dogged campaigns and above all extraordinary resistance. Mitter puts China at the heart of our understanding of the Second World War - a conflict that continues profoundly to shape China's view of itself and its neighbours today.
