A well-preserved map of Japan's invasion of northeast China was found recently in Yixian County, in east China's Anhui Province.
Measuring 80 centimeters by 54 centimeters, the map is finely printed in legible handwriting. Divided into two sections, the top part shows the territory of northeast China in the 1930s, with all the places occupied by Japanese invaders marked in red. The lower part gives historical background information, and the means and ultimate goals of the Japanese invasion of the region.
The map was published in 1941, four years after the War of Resistance against Japanese Invasion.
