The Great War in East Asia

Event Category:

May 3, 2018 @ 12:00 am

Most of the world focused its attention on events in Europe during the First World War, but many changes were brought to the Far East as well. Both China and Korea suffered from Japan’s favorable treatment in the Treaty of Versailles, adding to the ongoing political upheavals in both countries. The U.S., meanwhile, maintained a military role in both China and the Philippines while joining other allied states in operations in Russia. Joseph G.D. Babb explores the events in the Far East during this period that served as harbingers of the dramatic political changes and major conflicts in the coming decades.
