520    "For decades, a major piece of World War II history has 
       gone virtually unwritten. China was the fourth great ally,
       partner to the United States, the Soviet Union, and Great 
       Britain, yet its drama of invasion, resistance, slaughter,
       and political intrigue remains little known in the West. 
       In this emotionally gripping book, made possible through 
       access to newly unsealed Chinese archives, Rana Mitter 
       unfurls the story of China's World War II as never before 
       and rewrites the larger history of the war in the process.
       He focuses his narrative on three towering leaders -- 
       Chiang Kai-shek, Mao Zedong, and the lesser-known 
       collaborator Wang Jingwei -- and extends the timeline of 
       the war back to 1937, when Japanese and Chinese troops 
       began to clash, fully two years before Hitler invaded 
       Poland. Unparalleled in its research and scope, Forgotten 
       Ally is a sweeping, character-driven history that will be 
       essential reading not only for anyone with an interest in 
       World War II, but also for those seeking to understand 
       today's China, where, as Mitter reveals, the echoes of the
       war still reverberate"--|cProvided by publisher
