This chapter examines Japanese aggression and communist unrest in China during the 1930s. It explains that the clashes between the Chinese and Japanese in Manchuria and at Shanghai proved to be the beginnings of the road to full war between China and Japan in 1937 and to Pearl Harbor in 1941. These events also overshadowed the domestic troubles in China including the factionalism at Kuomintang and the continued activities of communist bands. This chapter discusses the U.S. Navy's response to these Chinese problems.
