A first-hand and often exciting account of the fate of the U. S. consulate in Dairen at the end of World War II, caught between the Soviet and the Communist Chinese machinations in Manchuria and eventually cut off. Scholars, however, will look in vain for any new light on U.S.-Chinese-Soviet relations in Manchuria at the time.
