The China Tangle

The China Tangle

By Herbert Feis
Princeton University Press, 1953
445 pp. $6.00

Having traced, in "The Road to Pearl Harbor," the background of the war between Japan and the United States, Mr. Feis now deals in this excellent study with the American effort in China from 1941 to the Marshall Mission. This difficult and intensely controversial topic is treated with scholarly care and emotional restraint but also with an eye to the inconsistencies and misjudgments in American policy. It is as the author says "a tale of crumpled hopes and plans that went awry."
