The Scale of the War in 1937 Shanghai…

Posted: February 4th, 2020 | No Comments »

I write a lot about the Sino-Japanese War in Shanghai but I found this stat from truly mind blowing in its enormity – it really brings home the scale of the Japanese attack on the city….and remember this is December 1937 and at this point only the Chinese-controlled portions of the city have been attacked. Effectivaly from Bloody Saturday (August 14th 1937) to the end of the year over 40,000 war-related deaths were recorded.
