New file at the Repository: 1938 Battle for Wuhan (2013-10-20)

Recommended Posts

The Battle of Wuhan drew so many Japanese resources that at the end of the battle Japan had only one division left on the home islands. Japan initially allocated 350,000 troops for this battle and then brought 400,000 more from its homeland to China. China deployed 1.1 million to fight the Japanese. The battle lasted four months and proved to be particularly intense and bloody, spanning the northern and southern shores of the Yangtze River, as well as several neighboring provinces. The Japanese managed to take Wuhan, but they did not stop Chinese resistance.
