The "Yan Xishan diary (1931 - 1944)" is a extremely valuable discovery. It gives readers a detailed view of the Sino-Japanese War ravaging China. Yan (1883 - 1960) was a warlord in the relatively remote Shanxi Province during the 1912 Xinhai Revolution that overthrew the imperial Qing. He played pivotal roles in the Warlord era, the Sino-Japanese War, and the Chinese Civil War which ended in 1949, as a pro-Nationalist general commanding the 2nd Regiment, Shanxi Div. Beiyang Army. The Sino-Japanese War began with Japan's stealthy invasion of China in the 1920's and ended in 1945 with Japanese surrender. In Simplified Chinese. Distributed by Tsai Fong Books, Inc.
