Shihchiachuang

Shihchiachuang (Shijiazhuang; 114.483E 38.041N) is a city and rail junction in northern China. It fell to the Japanese 1 Army on 10 October 1937, the defending 32 Army putting up little resistance and retreating clear to Tangyin, south of Anyang. The capture of Shihchiachuang allowed the Japanese to move troops along the rail lines to Taiyuan and Anyang. The city remained in Japanese hands until after the final Japanese surrender.
