The Sino-Japanese War (抗日战争) 1937-1945


The Sino-Japanese War


In 1937, fully-fledged war broke out with Japan after their imperialist aggression could no longer be tolerated by Chiang Kai-Shek. The Japanese won many victories initially, but the tide turned after Pearl Harbour in 1941 when the US army joined allied forces. During the war, the Japanese committed several atrocities, the worst of which is known as The Nanjing Massacre, when the Japanese army pillaged, raped and murdered innocent Chinese civilians. The dropping of the atomic bomb on Hiroshima and Nagasaki ended the conflict.
