Kubek introduces readers to the diplomatic and economic situation regarding the Chinese, the Soviets, and the Japanese during the 1930s up to the attack on Pearl Harbor. Kubek explains that the Japanese were a bulwark against the Chinese Communist guerrillas and the Soviets. Japanese diplomats made repeated friendly overtures to the U.S. when FDR & co. complained about Japanese intrusions in China in the 1930s. The Japanese kept Soviet expansion under control while protecting their own interests in parts of China which the Japanese desparately needed for natural resources. This section of HOW THE FAR EAST WAS LOST is crucial to understanding the diplomatic problems in Eastern Asia. The Japanese population was approximately half of that of the U.S., and these people were living in an area approximately the size of California. Japanese natural recources were the equivalent of those of the state of Mississippi. Any threat to these vital recources in Mancuria and other Japanese controlled areas of China controlled by the Japanese was seen as a life-and-death struggle.Read more ›

ANOTHER BOOK ABOUT THE PACIFIC WAR THAT I LIKED IS THE EMPIRE OF THE RISING SUN BY JOHN TOLAND
Kubek, Anthony 1963 How The Far East Was Lost. American Policy and the Creation of Communist China, 1941-1949. Henry Regnery Publishing, Chicago Library of Congress Number 63-12892; ASIN B000OMMQ2O Page 378 "No hoax has been more complete and convincing than that which deluded the American people from coast to coast into the belief that the Chinese Communists were a mild edition of agrarian reformers." One notes with sorrow that a similar hoax even to the inclusion of some common authors, journalists and newspapers (including the New York Times, and Theodore White) would be perpetrated on the U.S. and the people of Cuba. This book should have been a warning, to us in Cuba in the 1950s and yet it went essentially unheard.
