Editor's Recommendation
What kind of an army is the PLA?What stage of development are the various branches of the Chinese armed forces in?What a level of development does military weapons and equipment have reached?These questions have spurred a lively discussion of great concern to the international community and some overseas media。For this reason,Wang wei、 Xu dingxin believe that writing a vivid and accurate series of the Chinese army,for both domestic and foreign readers,would be very perinent。This book is one of these in the first series of books on the Chinese Army。
