Chiang Wei-kuo (left), the adopted son of Generalissimo Chiang Kai-shek, served as a commander of a panzer division during the 1938 Anschluss. “Ching-kuo’s stepbrother Wei-kuo, meanwhile, was developing his military career.

Thanks to German machine tools, Chinese arsenals were now capable of producing some weapons of quality and precision. Even so, the new German adviser, Alexander von Falkenhausen, believed that China needed two more years to reach his goal of sixty well-trained, modern divisions. New German heavy coastal guns, a dozen submarines, a German cruiser, torpedo boats, and other warships were not due to be delivered before 1938.
