In the press conference, the new series of books “compilation of files and documents about anti-Japanese war led by Communist Party of China in the eyes of foreign observers” (draft) completed by Professor Lv s team were particularly noticeable. The multifaceted academic value of this series was affirmed by participating experts. At the same time, unique vision and special contribution of Professor Lv in collection and sorting of relevant historical materials were reflected.
