1956 - Drage, Charles, Two-Gun Cohen, Panther Book of the Month Series No.1, Hamilton & Co. Ltd., London, July 1956

Michael Alderton (essarem) notes: This cover illustration, by the popular English illustrator Cyril Webb, is a depiction of General Cohen attending the 28 June 1924 passing out parade of the Whampoa Military Academy cadets. The South China Morning Post, published the following day, reported that: “Canton’s Troops: Yesterday’s Grand Review. A grand review of troops took place today on the Northern Parade Ground. The troops were all ready at 10 a.m. waiting for the arrival of the Generalissimo, Dr. Sun Yat-sen. Dr. Sun arrived at 10-30 a.m., accompanied by his personal bodyguard under the direct supervision of Mr. Maurice Cohen.”
