    Professor Toshi Yoshihara will discuss the research that went into his new book Mao’s Army Goes to Sea. Focused on the period from 1949 to 1960, the book New details about the founding of China's Navy reveals critical historical context and insight into future strategy. Dr. Yoshihara shows that Chinese leaders refashioned the stratagems and tactics honed over decades of revolutionary struggle on land for nautical purposes. Despite significant challenges, the PLA ultimately scored important victories over its Nationalist foes as it captured offshore islands to secure its position.
