Presents a portrait of the British petty thief and con artist who became a general in Nationalist China

Book News
Morris Abraham Cohen (1887-1970) was born into piety and poverty in London, was shipped off to Canada after being arrested for picking pockets in his teens, continued his career in petty crime from Manitoba to British Columbia, defended a Chinese gambling partner against a robber. He catapulted the ensuing respect from the Chinese community into a position as aide to Sun Yat-sen and a general in the nationalist army. He was captured by the Japanese in 1941, and remained on good terms with both Nationalists and Communists after the war. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.

A very readable and entertaining account of a true "character" from Canadian (and Chinese) history.
