The articles provide a competent, detailed, strongly factual and authoritative account of the two main armies' strategy, tactics, doctrines, weaponry, equipment, training, indoctrination, combat effectiveness, discipline, logistics, communications, conscription methods, intelligence, force structure and command, and of the international environment. " - Gregor Benton, The China Journal "[The Battle for China] fills a major gap in the historiography of the Sino-Japanese War and makes a valuable contribution to our understanding of the modern experience of East Asia ... Historians should find this volume a much needed addition to their essential readings." - Ke-Wen Wang, Journal of World History "[The editors of The Battle for China] present to Western readers some of the best scholarship on the Sino-Japanese War by Chinese and Japanese historians, whose writings and publications previously were inaccessible to readers of English ... [T]his rich and well-researched volume ... Should serve as an indispensable reference for the study of World War II." - Qiang Zhai, Frontiers of History in China "[R]emarkably well organized ... In many ways, this book is a model of transnational scholarly collaboration ... [T]his volume belongs on the shelf of all students and scholars of East Asian, international, and military history." - Edward A.
