Free read ☆ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB ó Tonio Andrade Free download ï Lost Colony ó PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB How a Chinese pirate defeated European colonialists and won Taiwan during the seventeenth centuryDuring the seventeenth century Holland created the world's most dynamic colonial empire outcompeting the British and capturing Spanish and Portuguese colonies Yet in the Sino Dutch War Europe's first war with China the Dutch met their match in a colorful Chinese warlord named Koxinga Part samurai part pirate he led his generals to victory over the Dutch and captured one of their largest and richest colonies Taiwan How did he do it Examinin. A fun and fast read with a compelling narrative This book is an intervention in comparative military history Rather than look at either the Dutch as Europeans or the Chinese as East Asians in isolation Andrade compares how they fared in a direct confrontation in mid 17th century Taiwan The conclusion is the Dutch nearly won because they had Renaissance Style fort architecture comprised of cross firing bastions and thickly walled redoubts as well as superior ships They ultimately lost Zeelandia Castle in western Taiwan to the half Chinese half Japanese Koxinga Zheng Chenggong because he was an exceptional strategist who drew from multiple traditions when creating outfitting and training his versatile armies In comparison the Dutch leader Coyet was a poor strategist who missed many opportunities to break the siege of his fort Weapons technology cannon and muskets were much closer across parties than I would have expected Indeed one of Andrade s main arguments is that we can t look at Europe as simply breaking away from and superseding Asia in regards to military technology in the late 2nd millennium There was much diffusion and cross learning That being said the superiority of the Dutch ships and forts was acknowledged by all sides even then One lingering uestion for me was why the Chinese didn t then start adapting the architectural technology in their coastal forts That had the ruins of many examples Is architecture an inherently conservative technology Could only a cosmopolitan like Koxinga pick it up Andrade also makes an argument about global cooling in the 17th century driving warfare and ruining crops For me this was a bit of a distraction reading like an effort to dip into climate change interest than really engage with the problem and its potential conseuences That is it stimulated many uestions for me than it answered Also his climate related citations are all to military historians and not to environmental historians
