520    "Joe Stilwell, known as Vinegar Joe for his caustic 
       personality, was stationed in Burma during World War II 
       and famously differed in strategy from other commanders in
       his division. In retrospect analyses, it's said that if he
       had gotten his way, the United States might have defeated 
       the Communists in 1945 and changed the course of history. 
       This meticulously-reached biography of Vinegar Joe 
       presents an intimate account of his career, working as 
       Chinese military leader Chiang Kai-shek s chief of staff, 
       the commander of the Chinese divisions in Burma, and the 
       deputy supreme commander of the South East Asia Command. 
       It explores Stilwell s determination to drive a road 
       through the jungle in order to reopen the old Burma Road, 
       and his passion to ensure that the colossal American 
       contribution to the Burma Campaign was not misappropriated
       by Chiang, his boss. In recounting Vinegar Joe's unusual 
       escapades, historian David Rooney provides an intimate 
       understanding of why Stilwell came to distrust and despise
       Chiang, and why he was fiercely critical of his fellow 
       commanders. Simultaneously sympathetic and critical, the 
       biography is one of a controversial American patriot."--
