      Con evidente parecido a su otra obra "La condición humana", la acción transcurre en el sur de China. Cantón y Hong Kong son los principales escenario en los primeros años del siglo XX. Tras la muerte de Sun Yat-sen, diversas fuerzas intentan hacerse con el poder en el sur de China; todas tienen aparentemente un objetivo común: expulsar a los británicos de Hong Kong, tarea nada fácil.El gobierno británico ayuda económicamente (es decir, soborna) a los caudillos locales que se enfrentan e [...]

      I knew nothing about The Conquerors--other than a passing familiarity with the author's name--when I saw it at some library sale or another. I tend to pick up a lot of material at those sales; the cost is almost insignificant, and if I think that someday I might be interested in the book, I pop it in the stack. Someday hadn't really come yet--in order to thin out material I don't feel is worth keeping, I sometimes pull down random selections, and this time it was Malraux's early novel.The Conque [...]

      Malraux's first novel, and it got him notoriety as a voice for the left wing. But its appeal is fundamentally political, and now that its ideological context isn't relevant anymore, it's not actually a terribly good novel.

      این کتاب با نام "فاتحان" توسط قاسم صنعوی ترجمه شده و در 1361 چاپ و منتشر شده است.

      I don't know why I can't read Malraux. His subjects interest me immensely, but I just can't get into the novels. I was blaming my French, but it is just as bad in English.

      If Americans mention Malraux at all it's only Man's Fate, but he documented some crazy shit in Shanghai and Southeast Asia in a number of other novels, this one among them.

      two stars, two stars, in comparison to man's fate. the 'ch'en' in this novel (i elect garine) is seemingly less spirited and less recklessly driven and less hungry than ch'en in man's fate.
