Two Brush Strokes covers the period of Chinese history in the late 1920s and the early 1930s, when rival groups formed national governments, trying to bring powerful local warlords to co-operate or to heel, when all China was in danger from the Japanese and trying to get control over its own destiny despite a legacy of foreign interference. The name comes from a JFK quote: “The Chinese use two brush strokes to write the word 'crisis.' One brush stroke stands for danger; the other for opportunity.”
