Northern Eurasia 1929: 1929 Sino-Soviet Conflict

By 1929, Chiang Kaishek’s Nationalists were rapidly reunifying China. With Chiang’s backing, the Manchurian warlord seized the part-Soviet administered Chinese Eastern Railway. The Soviets responded with a two-pronged invasion, swiftly forcing the Manchurians to come to terms and demonstrating China’s continued weakness.
