I posted this in another thread. For those of you who can read Chinese, please google for a book call 中日大决战. It details all the major battles between the Japanese and the Nationalist armies and how bravely the Nationalist armies fought in those battles
I highly recommend two books: 国破山河在 and 尊严不是无代价的 by 萨苏. He gathered historic documents from the Japanese archives to show what the Chinese forces did in the war. Very individual stories of Chinese soldiers' braveries. I have all books in ebook format. PM me if you want a copy.
I have seen some recent mainland movies and TV shows dealing with the Nationalist armies and in my opinion, they are shit. What they showed are nowhere near the stuffs I read in books
BTW, please leave the political discussions in other threads.
