My high school history experience left me with little knowledge of twentieth-century history outside of the United States. If memory serves me correctly, most of my history class was spent discussing WWII, the Soviet Union, Communism, Vietnam, and Civil Rights. While this may be an over generalization, what I am pointing out is the lack of attention paid to the affairs of other countries during this time period. Japanese occupation of China, Manchuria, Korea, and other territories during the late 19th and early 20th centuries is not a familiar topic for most of us. Having little knowledge of China’s struggle during WWI and the Japanese occupation, I decided to read Shanghai 1937 by Peter Harmen.
