Summary Sons is about the differences between three generations. Wang Lung died peacefully in the beginning. The story continued with the three different kinds of life that his three sons led. All of the three sons were concisely portrayed, with a slight emphasis on the third, Wang the Tiger. He rose slowly to the position of a warlord. In order to pass his position to his son as he was growing old, he sent his son to a military school to learn western war techniques. However, his sons turned against him by joining the New Revolutionary Army which was against all old lords.
