Our Dealing With China Makes a Sorry Story

May 1948
Saturday Evening Post;5/8/1948, Vol. 220 Issue 45, p172
The article focuses on the implications of the decision of former U.S. President Theodore Roosevelt to grant comrade Soviet leader Joseph Stalin the right to return the Czarist policy of converting Manchuria into a Russian satrapy. President Harry Truman sent General George Marshall to China to urge Generalissimo Chiang-Kai Shek to reconcile with the Reds through a coalition. The U.S. sympathized with Chiang Kai-shek's regime after being deceived by Russia's Far Eastern policy.
