Chinchow

Chinchow (Jinzhou; 121.15E 41.12N) is a city and rail junction in southern Manchuria

The city was bombed by the Japanese on 8 October 1931, during the Manchuria Incident, an action which had the effect of spreading the fighting throughout Manchuria. Thereafter it became clear that the Japanese Army meant to detach Manchuria and Inner Mongolia from China.

The fall of the city to Japanese forces by early January 1932 prompted the U.S. Government to announce the Non-Recognition Policy, under which the United States would not recognize any territorial changes effected by force.
