Surveys and Introductory Works

No comprehensive survey of Chinese military history is yet available in English, although more limited periods have been addressed. Two very useful works are Bruce A. Elleman, Modern Chinese Warfare, 1795-1989 (London and New York: Routledge, 2001) and Edward L. Dreyer, China at War, 1901-1949 (London and New York: Longman, 1995).
