    • @Matthias Van Hecke You are very confused. The video topic is clearly about Shanghai, not Nanjing. Next thing I know, I'm making a video about the battle of Berlin, but the video is instead about the battle in the Ardennes.

      Xor rdXor rd4 gün önce
    • They ran to Taiwan, leaving their parents, relatives and also wives and children behind in the mainland. Today their mainland descendants grow up believing that the communists are the ones who did most of the fighting. They probably also have Taiwanese descendants who view the mainland Chinese with disdain without regarding their ancestors' origin. And all this divide is due to what? Fcking ideological difference.

    • I guess you’re partially right since it only ended when World War II ended as well.

      Mr. KamikazeMr. Kamikaze2 gün önce

    • That’s just the start of the Second-Sino Japanese War, not the Second World War. What you’re saying could be applied to many other interwar period conflicts such as the Second Italo-Ethiopian War and the Spanish Civil War.

  • The significance of the Battle of Songhu was to change the direction of Japanese aggression against China, to induce Japan to invade China from east to west (China's overall terrain is high in the west and low in the east) After the National Revolutionary Army retreated, the pursuing Japanese mechanized troops unknowingly plunged into the terrain surrounded by mud and mountains in southern China, which provided ample opportunities for the National Revolutionary Army to ambush.

  • People who do not know the truth feel sympathy and anger for the fact that China was invaded by Japan in the past, just because they are democratic regimes. If China was under the leadership of the Communist Party or the Soviet Union was invaded by Japan before World War II, I believe the international community at that time would definitely stand on the side of the Japanese government. This is the capitalist.

  • Many people don't know about this but china's tough struggle against Japan in the war allowed it to strain Japan of its resources endlessly and tire itself out and in constaht need of more resources, hence they were desperate enough to start a war with the Americans, which would kill then in the end. Meaning without China, Japan would have easily ate up Asia and cooperated with Germany to destroy the soviets. It definitely should be taught more in schools

  • About the Baoshan town: A Chinese battalion had to face overwhelming Japanese invaders on their own. Outnumbered, outgunned, knowing their fate at the very beginning, they fought street by street and made the Japanese suffer even heavier casualities. The gunfire only subsided after seven days when the last defender fell, including all the officers. The battalion commander Major Yao Ziqing was later promoted to Major General posthumously. There is a movie with this story as the theme.

  • 中国的斯大林格勒战役怎么能是淞沪会战呢…… 斯大林格勒的意义在于扭转了溃败局面,而淞沪会战是中日战争中的第一次会战。是战略服从政略的一次战役,最终中方的政略也没有成功。淞沪的失败直接导致了之后南京保卫战的大溃败。

  • I wonder if Qing Government did not lose in the wars against the Western countries, Qing would not lose the huge amount of gold and silver as the so-called compensation. Since gold and silver can maintain the value of $$$, would the Chinese Government purchase enough amount of advance weapons including tiger tanks and MP40 from the Nazi?

    Tommy HonTommy Hon14 gün önce
    • The Nazis didn't even engineer enough tiger tanks for themselves so I doubt there would be much trade of these heavy tanks between Germany and China.

  • 2 thoughts: 1) Shanghai was no Stalingrad. The latter never fell. 2) All the effort put by Koumintang ironically resulted in dramatic weakening of their militias and resulted in communist occupation of China. Almost feeling sorry for non-Communists.

  • Fun Fact: The Rape of Nanjing was a direct result of the Battle of Shanghai. The Japanese, after the meat grinder of Shanghai, were essentially frustrated, and eventually, I guess angered is a way to put it, by the fast fall of the Capital and to essentially vent, they took it all out on the civilians.

  • Operation IchiGo 1944 remains under-rated and unknown in the West. It had Russian-German, Eastern Front level casualties. Millions of soldiers and hundreds of thousands of casualties on both side. In only 9 months. This front destroyed the fighting power of the Nationalist Army and paved the way for Communist victory only a few years later.
