Attached is a well-illustrated article from the pages of a 1943 YANK MAGAZINE filed from India regarding the military training of Chinese infantry under the watchful eye of General Joe Stilwell's (1883 1946) drill instructors:

"But the Chinese had little, if any experience with modern weapons, particularly field artillery pieces. Nor had any of them ever had live ammunition for practice. So, with weapons and supplies furnished China under the U.S. lend-lease agreement, Uncle Joe Stilwell's picked force of American noncoms started to use their new equipment."

This article will come as a surprise to the historical revisionists who maintain the Chiang Kai-Schek memorial in Taipei, where the American involvement in W.W. II is oddly remembered only as being the one nation that sold oil to the Japanese...
