I am convinced that we face a great offensive immediately, We have lost more than 400 killed and 300 wounded since Nov. 5 and now the Japanese have handed an ultimatum to me. I know we are not strong enough to fight. But we must hold our own, until Death!

A toast to America! A toast to China!Ma Zhanshan
The American people must understand that the China of today is not the China of 20 years ago. There has been a natural awakening. China will never submit to the Japanese.Ma Zhanshan
