According to the book description of Tales of the China Marines, it is “a book of historical fiction, covers the period in China during the years before World War II. It was a fascinating time not only for civilians but also for the servicemen of many nations including the U.S. Marines, Army and Navy. The infantry units of the Army and Navy were stationed primarily in Peking, Shanghai and Tientsin, while the Navy patrolled the Yangtze River, all served with the duty of protecting American civilians and Government property. Also protecting their civilians and trade were World Powers like Great Britain, France, Italy, Japan, to name a few. They established their own embassies and enclaves, which were independent of Chinese law to conduct their lucrative business. Into this maelstrom were thrust Darcy and Joe, who spend their Marine Corps careers together or separately in Guam, Peking and Shanghai. They lived in a world often referred to as The Mysterious Orient.”
