Summary
"Captain Glenn F. Howell kept a detailed account of his activities in China for 62 years. The resulting 202 volumes constitute an outstanding primary source on military service in China during the tumultuous period between two world wars." "This work presents Howell's diary during his command of the naval gunboat USS Palos on the Yangtze River from June 6, 1920, to September 23, 1921. Howell covers a range of topics, including the Chinese people, important locales (e.g., the Three Gorges), the opium trade, and the presence of missionaries and other foreigners in China."
