Epigraph
Volume Two: ...Marx, Engels, Lenin and Stalin are the common teachers for the world revolution.  Comrade Mao Tse-tung has skilfully "Sinicized" the ideology of Marx, Engels, Lenin, and Stalin, correctly applied it to the practical situation of China, and has led the Chinese Revolution to complete victory.
Owing to geographical, historical, economic and cultural conditions, the Chinese Revolution exerted a great influence on the Vietnamese revolution, which had to learn and indeed has learned many experiences from it. - Ho Chi Minh
Volume One:...There are fearful excitements on any side.
Any side can accuse the other
And feel virtuous without the hardships of virtue.
When pride of race has been pent up
In a tyrannous disregard, and valued liberties
Have been lost for long enough, what comes in the way
Of Dignity's free and natural flowing
Is nothing but rocks to be blasted.  I envy them
Their certainty.  Each private man
Has a public cause to elucidate him,
And a reasonable sense of having been wronged.
If you like you can call this man your enemy;
It's what he expects.
- Christopher Fry, The Dark is Light Enough
Dedication
Volume One:  This book is dedicated to Arthur Wittenstein--loyal friend, wise and patient counselor
First words
Volume Two: No war in history solved so much and yet so little as World War II.
Volume One:   Ancient Chronicles offer countless examples of guerrilla actions, usually of an independent type undertaken in self-defense by nomads and peasant bands, and normally resulting in little more than temporary embarrassment to the incumbent rule or temporary harassment to the invader.
