Summary
"Hogg's extraordinary odyssey in war-torn China, from 1938 to 1945, during which years he witnessed the aftermath of terrible Japanese massacres and met a number of Mao Tse-tung's generals, is a truly epic tale." "Working as a journalist, at a time when the Chinese civil war was also raging, Hogg was to become headmaster in 1943 of a school for orphans in north-west China. How he led and protected them from the Japanese on a 700-mile march across high mountain ranges in the winter of 1944-45 marks the stunning climax to an incredible story: one that, ending in his tragic death, will move and inspire all who read it."--Jacket
