Summary "The first book-length study of the largely neglected 1929 Sino-Soviet war, a short but bloody one fought over the jointly operated Chinese Eastern Railroad (CER) in China's northeast. Although classified as a modern limited war, with comparatively few major engagements, it proved to be the largest military clash between China and a Western power ever fought on Chinese soil. The conflict was also the first major combat test of the reformed Soviet Red Army"--Provided by publisher.
