Diplomats in Blue

University Press of Florida

This chapter examines the challenges posed by the upper Yangtze River for the U.S. Navy's Asiatic Fleet deployed to China for diplomatic purposes. In explains that aside from its numerous tributaries, the Yangtze River was the most troubled stretch within the Yangtze River Patrol Force's sphere of operations. It was suspected that in this area warlords and robbers agreed to share protection money, and the robber bandits thus became de facto units of the warlord's army.
