Lance Olsen addresses the elephant in the room in histories of WW2, focusing on the Battle of Taierzhuang.Japan contrived the Mukden Incident to invade China in September 1931 starting the war in Asia. Germany contrived the Gleiwitz incident to invade Poland in September 1939 starting the war in Europe. In a desperate bid to break the stalemate in China, Japan extended the Sino-Japanese War into the Greater East Asia War by attacking British and US territories in East Asia and the Pacific, including Pearl Harbor, in December 1941 – merging the wars in Asia and Europe into a worldwide war of Axis versus Allies. This book puts it all into perspective.In WW2, the basis of British and US strategy was Europe First or Germany First, but the elementary factor of the victory of the Allied Powers against the Axis Powers was – attrition – first deliberately applied at Taierzhuang. The major portion of Japans military might was consumed in China and the major portion of Germanys military might was consumed in Russia. However, while Stalingrad is often pointed out as a turning point of WW2, Taierzhuang 1938 – the model for Stalingrad 1942 – is in the blind spot of histories of WW2.This book provides detailed insight into the Battle of Taierzhuang: how a hodgepodge of troops inferior in almost every aspect – crushed elite divisions of crack troops superior in logistics, training, equipment and weaponry. It points out the startling similarity in the modus operandi for victory between it and the Battle of Stalingrad 4½ years later.Why the book is necessary is explained at --http://numistamp.com/Why-these-WW2-pa...Info on the upcoming book (ISBN: 978-0-9838435-9-7) is available at --http://numistamp.com/Taierzhuang-1938...(2 webpages -- use the link at the bottom of Page 1 to go to Page 2)Russian history buffs have found it interesting enough to request an abstract be put on the internet in Russia (http://ww2.debello.ca/eruption/pearl-...) and have reccommended it on Twitter (https://twitter.com/2ndww/)Lance Olsen is a history buff who realized that there is an elephant in the room in histories of WW2 and that an insight into this blind spot is needed to truly understand WW2 – to prevent history from repeating itself.Lance thinks outside of the box and searches beyond the conventional wisdom concerning WW2 and presents the results of his quest.For more info, see -- http://numistamp.com/Taierzhuang-1938...
