Kweiyang

Kweiyang (Guiyang; 106.703E 26.583N) was the railhead for the road to Chungking. The city was threatened by the Japanese Ko-go operation in April 1944, and the Allies feared its loss would expose Chungking and Kunming. However, the Japanese outran their logistics and withdrew without seizing the city, and the Allied commanders concluded that it had never been a Japanese objective.
