“Ian Easton has done an enormous amount of research in both Chinese and Taiwanese sources about a potential military conflict across the Taiwan Strait…I found myself interested in his citations and often challenged by his assertions. Whether you agree with his conclusions or not, it is worth reading this serious examination of the reality of a Chinese invasion of Taiwan.” ―Admiral Dennis Blair (USN, ret.), former Director of National Intelligence and Commander of U.S. Pacific Command.
