The Chinese People's Liberation Army (PLA) is the largest army in the world. China is said to be about to overtake the USA as the world's largest economy, and China's military capabilities and global ambitions are the greatest long-term pre-occupation of Western governments. This book explores the development of the PLA.

Praise For…

"Photos, extended captions, color plates and informative illustrations season this engaging effort.  The uniform and insignia details will certainly delight heraldry enthusiasts.  And charts, bibliography and index complete contents."
--David L. Veres, (January 2013)

"Any military library strong in either Chinese history or world military forces will find this a fine addition."
--The Midwest Book Review (February 2013)

"[The book] makes for a very interesting look into the PLA today and is a book that I found to offer insights that I had not considered. It is a book I enjoyed reading and am sure you will as well."
- Scott Van Aken, Modeling Madness (March 2013)
