I recently saw someone posted on reddit that colonial-Japan Taiwanese teachers were sent throughout SEA by Japan into Hokkien Chinese schools as infiltrators. When these countries were invaded by Japan, the teachers had identified prominent families' males to be executed by the kempeitai. Is there any truth to this?

It is appropriate to remember "The battle of Tengchong when "Chinese expeditionary army" together with guerilla forces fought a bloody war and defeated the Japanese invader". This part of battle is personal since Nanyang Chinese also contribute to the effort

云南腾冲:唱支山歌给党听​

Tengchong was major site of the China’s resistance war against Japanese invasion as an important Burma Road was built during the Second World War here. In the situation where the Japanese controlled most of the sea ports and cities of China, it was difficult for the American forces supporting the Kuomintang to provide military supplies in China. The Burma Road acquired a strategic importance in this context. The road used to transport military supplies to Kunming, Yunnan and other parts of China. The Burma Road is actually formed of two roads: one stretching 600 miles long built in 1937-38 between lashio, Burma and Kunming, China. It was basically to help Chiang Kai-Shek bring supplies through a backdoor of China after the Japanese invaded China; secondly, the straight lines built from ledo to Kunming, which is about 460 miles. The Burma and ledo Roads were built through the world’s most difficult terrain of China-India and Myanmar. Kunming in Yunnan was the main distributing point for the supplies which were coming from the Burma and ledo Roads. It was the leadership of General Stilwell, the commander of American troops in China-Myanmar-India region. In China, the Burma and ledo Roads are known as the Stilwell Road.

Stilwell’s troops invaded Myanmar from India in October 1943, the Japanese Army was defeated at the battles of Kohima and Imphal by the British forces and Stilwell forces fought a fierce battle against the Japanese to defend Myitkyina, which lasted for ten weeks from May-August in 1944. Chinese troops in a way fought under the US command. Tengchong became a battlefield when the Japanese imperial army invaded and occupied the Western Yunnan from Myitkyina in 1942. For the next two years, there was a war of resistance from China. The largest part of such war of resistance in Western Yunnan was to regain control of Tengchong town. When the Japanese invaded Tengchong from Myitkyina in Myanmar, they passed through and attacked villages and townships dominated by ethnic minorities like lisu, Dai, Wa and Anchang. Tengchong became the important battleground in the war of resistance in the Western Yunnan. It was only in September 1944, the Chinese expeditionary forces could recover this area.

The liberation of Tengchong and its significance in the China-Maynmar-India theatre of the Second World War may have become a forgotten episode for the people outside Yunnan. But the memories of the war still evoke strong emotions for the local people. Tengchong is an important fortification at the borders. It geographical location and specialty given the place a very critical role to play in military affairs. On September 14, 1944, the common people of the entire place, the self-defence force of the region and the expeditionary force came together to attack the Japanese forces at Tengchong. After a bloody war that lasted for 127 days, Tengchong was finally redeemed. More than 6,000 enemies, 9,168 people from the expeditionary force and 19 people from the allied forces of officers were killed in the war. This history of war of resistance is both inspiring and tragic at the same time. It reminds people and plays clippings of series of historic events in their minds: China-India highway and expeditionary forces, Tuofeng air route and flying tigers, the commissioner of the war of resistance Zhang Wende, the mausoleum of war heroes, etc.

To commemorate those soldiers who had sacrificed their lives, the Government has constructed the Cemetery of National Martyrs over an area of 10,000 sq metres. Souls of 9,000 soldiers of the expeditionary force who laid down their lives to recover the territory of Tengchong rest here. This cemetery was built in June 1956. At present it is the largest and well-protected frontline battlefield mausoleum for martyrs of the war of resistance.

Heading upward of this cemetery, there is a memorial compound with a small hall bearing the flags of the Guomindang and a portrait of Chiang-Kai-Shek. It is one of rarest phenomena showing respect to Republican flag which today is the flag of Taiwan. There are large numbers of tombs of Chinese soldiers arranged in a rank and file with names imprinted on those. It was these soldiers who prevented Japan from intruding China from the south west. There are more than 3,000 small headstones with the rank and names of those who lost their lives in the fierce battles for Tengchong that were crucial in preventing China’s collapse. Today, the Martyrs Cemetry on Songyuan lu is a reminder of the great sacrifices made by Chinese soldiers almost 70 years ago in Tengchong.

Hi Guys I'm a new member so I'm not entirely sure if this is the correct place to ask this question but is there an official Chinese Archive site that has footage of the Sino Japanese war similar to this?

were not easy. Small, but ever-growing, this new political force soon threw itself into the task organizing miners and factory workers in China's big cities into a revolutionary force. But was the support of the Chinese working class enough on its own? Answering that question would lead this young party into an alliance and a struggle for survival that would not just see the party survive but witness the rise of one of history's greatest personalities - Mao Zedong.


Long March Episode 3
Every great movement must overcome challenges. One of the greatest challenges ever faced by the Communist Party of China (CPC) was the Long March; an extended series of maneuvers made to evade defeat at the hands of its enemy, the KMT. Beginning in Jiangxi in 1934, thousands of Red Army officers and soldiers ended up trekking more than 9,000 kilometers, across some of China's most difficult terrain before it was over. Many did not survive the arduous journey. But those who did were imbued with a stronger sense of destiny and belief in their cause.

In 1950 Turkey enter the Korean war by sending 5000 strong army brigade. They are well regarded as heir to Ottoman empire But they hit snafu by mistaken So korean lost brigade as enemy. Latter they fought against Chinese volunteer Army and get wipe out with 3000 casualty Close caption with english subtitle. But toward the end of Korean war they redeem their honor by fighting the Volunteer army hard and at one point they fought back and forth for a hill 15 times change hand

In 1950, when the Korean War broke out, Turkey followed the United States and sent more than 5,000 people to the war. This Turkish brigade is powerful, all equipped with American weapons, and is very hard-working and good at fighting. The U.S. military attaches great importance to it and directly deploys it in the front-line troops. As soon as the Turkish brigade entered the Korean battlefield, it performed a shocking "manipulation of God".Mistaken S Korean army for North Korean army. For a time, the South Korean army was annihilated as a volunteer army, which caused great jokes. After this joke, they still didn't know that they were very disdainful of the Volunteers with outdated weapons and equipment, and repeatedly threatened to take action to teach them a lesson. However, after a few battles, they were beaten by the Volunteers and lost all their haughtiness. So why is the performance of the Turkish brigade on the Korean battlefield so ridiculous? How did the Turkish brigade make a joke about annihilating friendly forces? And how did the volunteers slap him in the face? In this issue, the curator Mr. Yu will bring you the story behind the Turkish brigade on the Korean battlefield.

During the Korean War, the Turkish brigade 5,000 people were annihilated in 3 days. 3,000 soldier get killed​

Heard from my grandfather (whose father served in the war) in Burma campaign indian soldiers carried poison with em as it was better to die then be captured by the Japanese

Because Japanese were known to be especially cruel to indian forces who they thought of as Inferior race and because of that they tortured em way more severely then a white soldier
