  • I think China should apologize to the Japanese people for provoking Japan into this brutal war. Many Japanese soldiers sacrificed their lives for the common good of China and Japan. The sooner China apologizes, the better for the two countries moving forward. China´s apology should be a sincere one ( not a fake one).

  • Well I learned that china served as the same role as russia to german. By spending crazy amount of ressource to invade china, japan eventually lost the war because he is fighting at two fronts. He couldn't just conquer china like that, he was spending so much, so he needed more ressource elsewhere. Then eventually he was on a collision course with US.

As the war progressed, Chinese civilians becoming more and more supportive to Japanese soldiers. During the Operation Ichi-Go, Chinese farmers joined the Japanese army, attacked the Chinese troops.

  • It is a mistake to say that the Nanjing Massacre killed 300,000.This is because the number of Nanjing citizens at that time was 200,000. The Japanese side called it the "Nanjing Incident" and said that the death toll was about 15,000. It is speculated from here that the Nanjing Massacre theory came out because the IMTFE could not accurately grasp or refute the Chinese side's allegations. Due to the NMT against the Nazis, a ruling was needed to prevent Japan from waging war again. The "Nanjing Massacre" was used there. I didn't know the exact information about Nanjing as the situation at that time. Therefore, the death toll has continued to rise, and now the theoretically impossible figure of 300,000 has been issued. In other words, it was used for propaganda that our war was right. I am Japanese, and until recently I had "abandoned thinking about war" from the education that "war should never happen again". It is true that the runaway of the Army led to the Sino-Japanese War triggered by the Manchurian Incident. However, at that time, no one knew about the Japanese soldiers who continued to endure the guerrilla operations by the Kuomintang and others before the Manchurian Incident. I want historians to know how much facts have been distorted to make the Nazis evil.

    • And yes Nanjing Massacred looks like a fake story. Your number of 200,000 people in that city is correct. According to ROC record, Nanjing´s population rose to 277,000 just 6 months after the battle. That means not only those 200,000 Nanjing citizens survived the battle, more Chinese people moved into the city after the battle when the city was under Japanese control, because the IJA was well known for its high degree of military discipline. The Chinese people felt safe under Japanese protection.

    • ​@C Chen Yes. exactly. There are pros and cons to the creation of "Manchuria," but the civil war in China and the development of Manchuria at that time show how Japan invested in Manchuria. The influx of residents seeking stability will dramatically increase Manchuria's population. To do so, the line of defense must be strong and humane. Of course, Manchuria has abundant resources, but there are also reasons to protect the "Qing" emperor. It is a place that can prevent the Soviet Union from moving south, especially from a geopolitical point of view. And suppress the head of China. However, Western countries are afraid of the rise of Japan and are in the process of not being recognized by the United Nations Federation. At that time, China was discussing how to divide its territory in the western world. As depicted in the pizza caricature. For Western countries, if Japan tries to dominate China, it will rob new markets. Therefore, I think that "Manchuria" was not recognized. China also had a factor in attacking Japan. In China at the time, all foreign countries were enemies, as the "boxer rebellion" showed. Therefore, each country is sending troops to protect expatriates. However, Japan dispatched only a small number of troops. This is a good goal for China. "Japan will not fight back even if it attacks", so the flow is "Let's attack Japan". When China invades another country, China will feel severe resistance. Thus, the war between Japan and China began with a runaway Japanese army whose patience was broken due to Western speculation and Chinese resistance.

    • Also, before the full-scaled war in Shanghai 1937, the CCP launched terrorist attacks against Japanese businesses / civilians in China in an effort of provoking war between the Chinese Nationalists gov't and Japan. Finally, they kidnapped the Nationalist president Chiang Kai-Shek in December 1936 during the XIan Incident and forced him to join the so-called Anti-Japanese Alliance. Japan acted a way of self-defense.

  • There's a theory that the reason why the 'second front' was opened by Chang Kai-shek in Shanghai was because he did not want the Japanese invading China from the top-down. All successful foreign invasions were always top-down - the Mongols (Yuan Dynasty) and the Manchurians (Qing Dynasty). But never east-west. This is because China's mountain ranges are mostly vertical so they go up and down, allowing invaders easy movement into the heart of the country if they invade from the top. But, if they invade from the side, the mountain ranges become advantageous and would be able to slow the invading force. Hence, by forcing the Japanese to focus on the invasion from Shanghai, it stops their movement into the country. Edit: Spelling mistake
