“The captivating text of this book details, illustrates and studies the great 'warlords' of the 20th century. It is about the organization of the 'warlord' forces and their acquired weaponry much from the west, plus the latest French air force bombers. The book is enhanced with many rare photographs and accurate uniform plates beautifully illustrated by Stephen Walsh.” ―www.mataka.org (November 2010)
“Show[s] all the hallmarks of what makes Osprey unique. Solid, engaging writing, with overviews of the period that let you get a grasp of the history while focusing on military units and what made them interesting.” ―Greater Games Industry (Spring 2011)
“As with all Men-At-Arms titles, this one provides a background to the various campaigns, has a look at how the conflicts progressed and were resolved, then takes a closer look at how these men performed during the various campaigns. As usual, their uniforms and other accoutrements are the main focus of the photos in the book. This is all enhanced more by the superbly done uniform illustrations of Stephen Walsh.” ―Scott Van Aken, Modeling Madness (September 2010)
About the Author
Philip Jowett was born in Leeds in 1961, and has been interested in military history for as long as he can remember. His first Osprey book was the ground-breaking MAA 306 Chinese Civil War Armies 1911-49; he has since published a three-part sequence on The Italian Army 1940-45 (MAA 340, 349 & 353). A rugby league enthusiast and amateur genealogist, he is married and lives in Lincolnshire.

Illustrated with photos and original artwork, this slim volume does its best to put this conflict in context.
The present book, also written by Phillip Jowett, shows the uniforms of the "other side" (the warlord side) during this struggle against the warlords. This whole situation in China became much more complicated after 1930, starting with the Japanese invasion of Manchuria in September of 1931 and their invasion of China itself in July of 1937. Once a reader starts reading these books by Phillip Jowett, the reader naturally begins to wonder about in China's history. This is especially true with regard to the complicated period of time of the Japanese invasions following 1930. Never fear, Phillip Jowett has written another book for the same Men-at-War series which covers the Japanese invasion troops.
