Tai An-lan (Dai Anlan) commanded the Kuomintang 200 Division in December 1941. He was a bold and tenacious fighter, whose division held Toungoo against the Japanese for twelve days but received no support from 22 Division (Tu Yu-ming) and was forced to retreat with heavy casualties. He was mortally wounded in a Japanese ambush as his division retreated through the mountains to Myitkyina. Described as a man of "ability and force, and considerable courage" (quoted in Romanus and Sunderland 19523), his death was a tragedy for the Kuomintang.
