Chengchow

Chengchow (Zhengzhou, 113.65E 34.75N) was the center of a rich agricultural region of central China, and it had food processing plants as early as the beginning of the 20th century. It owed much of its growth to the junction of major north-south and east-west railways.

The city was close to the front line throughout most of the Pacific War, but was finally occupied by the Japanese on 20 April 1944, at the very start of Ichi-go.
