From the Hardcover edition.

From AudioFile:

Frederick Townsend Ward, a soldier of fortune, came to China in 1859 and offered his services to the imperial government. The narration sounds like a lengthy lecture on military tactics, smoothly delivered but pedantic. Recommended for military history buffs only. D.L.G. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
