In 1939 Carl Crow travelled up the Burma Road from Rangoon to the wartime Chinese capital of Chongqing. The road was China's perilous but vital 717-mile lifeline to the outside world. In Chongqing, Crow describes what was at that point the most heavily bombed city on Earth, observes the daily struggle of the Chinese people under Japanese bombardment, and interviews the most senior Chinese government members. Published for the first time, The Long Road Back to China is Crow's typically observant and sympathetic first hand memoir of China's darkest hour.
