Fast and good, but it's just the basics
on October 11, 2017
The downside: it's missing good background detail and could use a better discussion of logistics in the final war phases. The upside: it is a very good, fast, readable introduction, about 1.5 layers deep, to the Chinese Civil War. If you just want to know the basics, this book is a good place to stop; if you want to dig in to an expert level, this book is a good place to start.
