Today we continued our study of China and Japan befor the Second World War. We did Ex # 14 and I issued another map exercise. We also discussed the Nanking Massacre and the bias involved in its reporting. We looked at four reasons why the Japanese soldiers might have acted the way they did. We also took some notes specific to China and the conflict between Mao and Chiang Kie Shek.
Tomorrow, we begin the Second World War. Read Chapter 11 of DeMarco.
