It explains that when Dai Li was recalled to Nanjing after the fall of Shanghai, he immediately designated the capital as a special district and put it under the command of Qian Xinmin. It discusses Dai Li's special training unit within the Hangzhou Police Officers Academy and the reorganization of the Juntong which revived the old animosities between the Blue Shirts and the CC clique. It also highlights the creation of the Loyal and Patriotic Army and training unit factionalism.
