The Raping of Nanking

Nanking is the capital city of china. Japan invaded Nanking, because japan had little natural resources and Nanking did, so Japan went in, took what they wanted and killed as many as they could. The actual military invasion of Nanking was preceded by a tough battle at Shanghai that began in the summer of 1937. The Japanese Imperial Army marched into China’s capital city of Nanking and proceeded to murder 300,000 out of 600,000 civilians and soldiers in the city. ¬†Over 400,000 Chinese died as Japanese soldiers used them for bayonet practice and machine gunned them into open pits. Natives in other areas felt endangered by the Japanese and thought they might be attacked along with the other placesImageImage
