This collection of more than 400 telegrams exchanged from 1940 to 1943 between T. V. Soong and Chiang Kai-shek, two of the most important figures in modern Chinese history, present an illuminating portrait of T.V. Soong's political and diplomatic careers in World War II. His correspondence with Chiang Kai-shek during this critical period also provides new understanding of the U.S.-China relationship during World War II, offering a close examination of the differences in political culture, cognitions, and beliefs of the two nations.

By examining these carefully selected and meticulously translated telegrams, we see how and why the Sino-American relationship was revitalized during wartime, and how T.V. Soong contributed to that relationship, skillfully creating a strong relationship between China and the U.S. government. The book includes a useful index of names and special terms.
