By Charles G. Finney, about his time in 15th Infantry in China 1927-29. Really good book about the old regular US Army in China. Funny stories about peace time service in a foreign land, rivalry with the US Marines, Chinese Warlords and their Russian mercenaries (Mukden Lancers), service with British, French, Italian and Japanese troops, the immigrant background of nco's and enlisted personel (kind of a foreign legion), and Old Fugies (thirty year men who retired in China). All in all, a great book. Read it if you can :)
