Thus, this book is an innovative work so far at home and abroad that, in a literary form, builds a relatively authentic image of Sun Yat-sen and Chen Jiongming.《北伐往事(旧军阀与大革命)》围绕1921年至1922年孙中山在广州建立革命政府,当选为非常大总统,为统一中国,建立北伐大本营、出师北伐这一重大历史事件,展开当时中国军政舞台上错综复杂的斗争,特别是孙中山与陈炯明之间既合作又斗争,直至最后孙、陈关系彻底破裂,孙中山倡导的以武力统一中国的北伐事业和陈炯明追求的以“联省自治”统一中国的行动均告失败。作者根据海内外的最新研究成果和新发现的史料,以最新观点,最新视角,展现孙中山与陈炯明的不同政治理念与迥然不同的个性的冲突,力求忠于历史,还原历史人物的真实风貌,这也是海内外迄今以文学形式塑造的较为真实的孙中山和陈炯明形象的一部创新之作。
