[Read by Pam Ward]

In this Pulitzer Prize-winning biography, Barbara Tuchman explores American relations with China through the experiences of one of our men on the ground. In the cantankerous but level-headed ''Vinegar Joe,'' Tuchman found a subject who allowed her to perform, in the words of the National Review, ''one of the historian's most envied magic acts: conjoining a fine biography of a man with a fascinating epic story.'' -- Joseph Stilwell was the military attaché to China in 1935 to 1939, commander of United States forces, and allied chief of staff to Chiang Kai-shek in 1942-44. His story unfolds against the background of China's history, from the revolution of 1911 to the turmoil of World War II, when China's Nationalist government faced attack from Japanese invaders and Communist insurgents.
