Review of the hardback: 'Any student of WW1 would consider this book as an essential read.' Open History Review of the hardback: '... a fine example of the writing of international history, based on careful archival research. The argument is skilfully developed and assisted by a small section of illustrations. It puts before the reader the Chinese side of a story which is not unfamiliar but which has been slanted in the past.' The China Quarterly Review of the hardback: 'This is an important book, helping to answer hitherto neglected questions about China's role in the Great War and the role the war played in bringing China onto a changing international stage. It is well researched and written, and deserves to be read widely.' Asian Affairs
