Chapter Summary

The Wuyi range is perfectly placed from a strategic point of view; joined to other mountains north and south, it guards the whole of the northwest part of the provincial boundary for a distance of over two hundred miles. The people of the Wuyi mountains had undertaken to supply food to the soldiers and provide intelligence on enemy movements. After the defensive line in the Wuyi Mountains had been broken the Beijing army advanced down the valley of the Min river towards Fuzhou. Taiwan not China had become the focus of their patriotism. The importance for Taiwan of the ABM Convention was that it removed the darkest shadow hanging over Taiwan's dream of independence. China, as a member of the Security Council had tried to obstruct the adoption of the treaty, but dared not come out openly in favour of 'first use' of nuclear weapons and had finally abstained.
