BARBARA TUCHMAN, whose previous works have examined World War I and the origins of the world's most violent century, now turns her attention to the sources of America's involvement in Asia. Stilwell and the American Experience in China, 1911-45 is brilliant narrative history and superb biography-at once the story of our number-one man in China, the fabulous "Vinegar Joe, " and of the American relation to China over three decades, from the fall of the Manchu empire to the rise of Mao Tse-tung. Stilwell was a man who loved China deeply, spoke its language, knew its people as fe v Americans ever have, and who saw the country without the obscuring haze of myth of his couittrymen at home. The narrative follows hiin from the time he first entered China during the Revolution of 1911, the year when "the most ancient of independent nations stumbled into the twentieth century, " through his tours of duty in Peking and Tientsin in the 192os and 3os, to his return as theater commander for China-Burma-India in World War II. Entwined with his fortunes is the twisted tale of American policy from the Open Door of John Hay to the doomed mission of General Marshall. The story reaches a climax in the classic confrontation between Stilwell, the unyielding force (in his assignment to mobilize the "combat effectiveness" of China), and Chiang Kai-shek, the immovable object. In that conflict the Generalissimo prevailed; China's destiny was self-determined, with results affecting all of us today.
