      I just read your Wikipedia entry where you refer to the British Edition published by Victor Gollancz in 1944. The book posted here is the First American Edition published by Alfred A. Knopf in January 1943.

      For a serious and accurate fact-checking job, you should read the following biography:

      Price, Ruth. (2005) The Lives of Agnes Smedley. Oxford: Oxford University Press.
