Transcript of China During WWII Timeline
January 1939 - August 1945 China During World War II - Kelsey, Jessie, Chase More on China during WWII Second Sino-Japanese War (1937-1945) This war stared in April of 1927. The Chinese Civil War was fought between the Kuomintang (KMT or Chinese Nationalist Party) and the Communist Party of China. The war was between the Western China Nationalists and the Soviet-supported Communists. This war carried onto the Second-Sino war. There had to be a peace treaty issued to call of the war. Modernly, the two sides share a tied economy, regardless of the dispute. Chinese Civil War (1927–1950) During the Second-Sino War, Northern China later surrendered and was given to the Japanese. China's government struggled causing China to be immensely weakened. Though Japan surrendered. The Chinese did not want to look weakened to the other armies. The Chinese were waiting for the League of Nations to help them regain strength as a country against the opposing Japanese forces, though they never helped. Chinese Resistance Strategy Chiang Kai-shek the Chairman of the National Government of China realized that he had to prove to the other countries that they were capable to fight. So Chiang Kai-shek decided to make a stand at Shanghai. Later China had to retreat to Nanjing, but Chiang's plan had worked and other countries became aware of how tenacious China was in their cause and would not be easily defeated. This resulted in foreign aid toward China. Chiang Kai-shek This is when Japan invades China prior to the start of World War II. Japan had intentions on taking over some areas to gain more power, due to the corruption of China. In China the region of Manchuria was rich with resources that Japan wanted. Manchuria would also act as a protective state from the Soviet Union in Siberia. After five months of fighting, Japan took over Manchuria re-naming it to Manchukou in 1932. In February 1942, the United States Congress gave foreign aid and approved a 500 million dollar loan to China. President Roosevelt described China as the US’s main ally against Japan. The foreign aid helped China immensly during this time.
Chinese forces resisted, repelling two Japanese offensives during summer 1945. Still in 2013, a grudge between China and Japan is remained.
