The Shanghai Incident

This chapter examines the after-hostilities of the Shanghai Incident. It explains that the sudden cessation of serious fighting in early March 1932 by no means ended the Shanghai Incident because another two months of sparring between the Chinese and Japanese occurred before even a formal ceasefire agreement could be signed. This chapter discusses the actions taken by the U.S. Navy in relation to the Japanese-Chinese conflict during this time.

Keywords: Shanghai Incident; Japanese-Chinese conflict; ceasefire; U.S. Navy; hostilities
