Sept 3 is observed as victory day in the Chinese People’s War of Resistance Against Japanese Aggression (1931-45). The day is also observed as victory day in the major oriental battlefield of the Anti-Fascist War.

China was the first country to suffer from and fight against fascist invasion. The Chinese War of Resistance Against Japanese Aggression, which started in 1931 when the Imperial Japanese Army invaded the northeastern part of China, then an agricultural country, turned into a bitter 14-year-long fight against a strong industrial power.
