Présentation de l'éditeur :

Discover the men behind one of the most exotic military environments of the 20th century. Humiliatingly defeated in the Sino-Japanese War 1894-95 and the Boxer Rebellion of 1900, Imperial China collapsed into revolution in the early 20th century and a republic was proclaimed in 1912. From the death of the first president in 1916 to the rise of the Nationalist Kuomintang government in 1926, the differing regions of this vast country were ruled by endlessly forming, breaking and re-forming alliances of regional generals who ruled as 'warlords'.

These warlords acted essentially as local kings and, much like Sengoku-period Japan, a few larger power-blocks emerged, fielding armies hundreds of thousands strong. This book, the first detailed, illustrated guide to do so, studies each great warlord in turn, as well as the organization of their forces which acquired much and very varied weaponry from the west, including the latest French air force bombers. They were also joined by Japanese, White Russian and some Western soldiers of fortune which adds even more color to a fascinating and oft-forgotten period. The fascinating text is illustrated with many rare photographs and detailed uniform plates by Stephen Walsh.

Revue de presse :

"The captivating text of this book details, illustrates and studies the great 'warlords' of the 20th century. It is about the organization of the ‘warlord’ forces and their acquired weaponry much from the west, plus the latest French air force bombers. The book is enhanced with many rare photographs and accurate uniform plates beautifully illustrated by Stephen Walsh." -www.mataka.org (November 2010)

"As with all Men-At-Arms titles, this one provides a background to the various campaigns, has a look at how the conflicts progressed and were resolved, then takes a closer look at how these men performed during the various campaigns. As usual, their uniforms and other accoutrements are the main focus of the photos  in the book. This is all enhanced more by the superbly done uniform illustrations of Stephen Walsh." - Scott Van Aken , Modeling Madness (September 2010) 

"Show[s] all the hallmarks of what makes Osprey unique. Solid, engaging writing, with overviews of the period that let you get a grasp of the history while focusing on military units and what made them interesting." - Greater Games Industry (Spring 2011)
