Description

This book presents an annotated translation of the only known military diary in pre-modern Chinese history, providing fresh and extensive information on the inner workings of the Ch'ing army. The personal experience of the author, a young Manchu officer fighting in inhospitable south-western China, takes us close to the 'face of the battle' in seventeenth-century China, and enriches our general knowledge of military history.
