The Chinese Army Compendium is your comprehensive guide to using Chinese armies in Battlefield Evolution: World at War. The Chinese role and importance in World War II is often overlooked or misjudged by western wargamers and even historians. For China World War II has a rather different meaning then that in the rest of the world.
Interestingly enough in China, no one talks about the Second World War; instead people talk about the Anti-Japanese War. This book covers the Chinese armed forces of the War against the Imperial Japanese Army from 1937 to 1945; be it Kuomintang forces (Chinese National Revolutionary Party) or Mao Tse-tung's People Liberation Army.
Included are the following army lists:
1937 - 1938 Nanking National Revolutionary Army
1937 - 1941 Soviet Advised National Revolutionary Army
1942 - 1943 National Revolutionary Army
1944 - 1945 Late War Chinese US equipped X and Y-Forces
1937 - 1945 Chinese Red Army Guerrilla Forces
