It is a pity that most of them do not see the present China.I am a survivor of many who did more than I did. While commemorating the 60th anniversary of victory of international antifascist war, it reminds me of what I saw and heard on Chinese battlefields, and also international friends who reported the anti-Japanese struggle of the Chinese people on foreign media. This book is dedicated to anti-fascist fighters of the world, to all those who died for the victory of this just war.
