'Until the coming of its war-built railway, Kwangsi was as inaccessible as some of the provinces in the deep hinterlands; yet a section of its southern border is almost within sight of the South China Sea. Kweilin, its capital, was one of the most beautiful cites in China until it was ravaged and burned in the final months of the war.'
