Assignment: Shanghai is a picture-chronicle of life in China as an increasingly desperate population fell prey to the miseries of civil war.

It is the work of photographer Jack Birns, who arrived in war-torn China in December 1947, and remained there until Shanghai fell to communist forces in May 1949.
