The China Mission

Thursday, November 19, 2020

Author Daniel Kurtz-Phelan will visit the MacArthur Memorial to discuss his book The China Mission: George Marshall's Unfinished War, 1945-1947. The China Mission traces a forgotten interlude in George Marshall’s career?a story of not just diplomatic wrangling and guerrilla warfare, but also intricate spycraft and charismatic personalities. Drawing on eyewitness accounts both personal and official, it offers a richly detailed, gripping, close-up, and often surprising view of the central figures of the time?from Marshall, Mao, and Chiang to Eisenhower, Truman, and MacArthur?as they stood face-to-face and struggled to make history, with consequences and lessons that echo today.
