🎧 Lecture 12: "Resist Japan!" 1937–1945 | The Fall and Rise of China by Richard Baum

Listened to Lecture 12: "Resist Japan!" 1937–1945 by Richard Baum from The Fall and Rise of China

In the fireball of World War II, witness the brutal Japanese offensives in China and their grim consequences for the Nationalists, while paradoxically sparing the Communists from annihilation. Learn also about growing U.S. ambivalence toward Chiang K'ai-shek and how Japanese brutality actually aided the Communists' seizure of power.

This lecture was pretty information dense, so I’ve listened to it a second time. Also makes a nice review while trying to continue on with the series.
