This is an overview of America's first effort in military aid to a foreign sovereign nation at a time when Europe was engaged in open warfare, Asia was facing a series of military confrontations, and most of the world thought global conflagration was inevitable. The work offers insight into the impact of war in Burma, a backwater of World War II, and examines events that result when great powers go to great lengths to further their own goals. The work also examines disagreements among China, the United Kingdom, the United States and Japan, and shows the evolution of aid provision to another country and changing expectations as new information arises.
