    If you have a change to go to Changsha again, look carefully at the stone work in the front plaza of Taoist Yunlu Palace (云麓宫) on top of Yuelu mountain. On the sides of brick, you’ll names of soldiers of officer died during the 4 battles of Changsha (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_Changsha_(1942)) similar to the Vietnam war monument in the US. It’s one of few remaining monuments remaining in China on the KMT effort in WWII.
