'The China Mission'


To members and friends of the Providence Committee on Foreign Relations (thepcfr.org):

Daniel Kurtz-Phelan, executive editor of Foreign Affairs, will talk about his exciting new book, The China Mission: George Marshall’s Unfinished War, 1945-1947, at 4 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 30, at the Joukowsky forum at Brown University, on Providence’s East Side. There will be a book signing and reception to follow.

The book is about General Marshall’s excruciatingly difficult and ultimately doomed effort to end the civil war between Mao Zedong’s Communists and Chiang Kai-shek’s Nationalists right after World War II.
