9780975880005: An American in China 1936-1939: A Memoir

From the Grand Hotel de Pékin to the steps of Chungking, a vivid account of pre-Communist, war-torn China by a young Yale graduate working for Texaco. In this informative journal are extensive chapters on Tsingtao, Chungking and Canton. The author gives a first-hand description of the harrowing events leading up to the Japanese occupation of Tsingtao in Jan. 1938. Before its fall, the town was a popular seaside resort and international naval port much admired by foreigners. The book is profusely illustrated with maps and color and black-and-white photographs, many taken at the time by the author. A must for old and new China hands.
