in Circrle-

the war, membeirs of .the Supreme
War Council generally divide the
conflict into three phases,
In the first period the Chinese fol-
lowed the strategy of the Fussians
during the Napoleonic invasion of
1812-retreat. They retreated froin
the seacoast to a line connecting
Canton, Hankow and Lanchow, near
the northwestern frontier.
Japs Iold Cities '
With this phase of the war draw-
ing to a close, Japanese are in pos-
session of tie T,-_e cities and the
principal conunu ication lines. The
Chinese expect completion of this
phase within a few months.
In the second period, as the Chi-
nese see it, the Japanese will try to
suppress guerrillas and mobile units
between the railways while Generalis-;
simo Chiang Kai-Shek prepares a new
army in the southwest provinces.
The third and final phase will be
the counter-attack, which Chinese
expect to come in 1941. The war
started on July 7, 1937.
Chiang Kai-Shek's army of 2,000,-
000 men is undergoing a difficult re-
organization in preparation for the
second phase-mobile warfare.
Chinese Are Confident
The Japanese drive into the in-
terior of China has nearly spent its
force, the Supreme War Council be-
lieves. Although Japanese continue
to talk about chasing Chiang to
Szechwan province if necessary, the
hinese army staff does not take the
threat very seriously.
At least a third of the Chinese
armies that defended Shanghai;
Soochow and Hankow must be con-
verted into mobile units, operating
behind and between the Japanese
communication lines.
But changing regular soldiers into
irregular units is not easy. Every
army officer from the rank of lieuten-
ant to colonel must be given at least
three months of instruction. An
army of illiterate coolies must be
trained to fight as individuals. Every
man in a mobile, hit-and-run arany
is a unit in himself.
Reorganization Is Lengthy
To reorganize one-third of Chiang's
army on such a basis would require
many months of training and ex-
periment, during which the present
irregular forces must bear the brunt
of the fighting.
The factors involved in the Chinese
three-phase war plan have been 3tat-
ed clearly by a, leader of the Com-
Munist party, Mao Tzetung, whose
book entitled "Essay on Protracted
War" has sold 120,000 copies during
the past six months.
