Publisher's Summary

This is a story that imperial China never wanted you to hear. It is the astonishing true tale of Frederick Townsend Ward, an American soldier of fortune who changed the course of Chinese history by leading one of the most extraordinary military campaigns the world has ever seen. Generations of anti-Americanism and political turmoil in China have erased nearly all traces of Ward’s legacy.

Excellent & thought-provoking!

The book is, (as any discerning-reader will expect of its author), superb! I want more!

Amazing Story

This is an amazing story of a little-known American hero who fought for the defense of the people of Shanghai, yet is unknown today both in China and in the United States. The otherwise good narration is marred by an only adequate pronunciation of Chinese.
