Yu Hsueh-chung (Yu Xuezhong) commanded the Kuomintang Shantung-Kiangsu War Area in December 1941. He was one of the better Chinese commanders; in particular, his troops retained some discipline in defeat. He was sufficiently anti-Japanese that, during the tense period preceding open warfare between Japan and China, the Japanese demanded his removal as governer of Hopei Province. (The Kuomintang government acceded.)
