China Crosses the Yalu
China Crosses the Yalu
By Allen S. Whiting
Macmillan, 1960, 219 pp

A serious inquiry into the motivations and considerations that may have led Communist China to intervene in the Korean War. In the absence of hard evidence the author is forced to weigh various possibilities, but in doing so sheds a good deal of light on the problem of Chinese Communist behavior in war and strategy.
