Overview

China

This month the People's Republic of China (PRC) and the Soviet Union will sign a strategic alliance treaty in Moscow. What the Sino-Soviet alliance portended was not even guessed at by the Americans.

The repatriation of Koreans currently in the CCF resulted in about 12,000 men forming in Honan Province.

The men came from the CCF 138th, 140th, 141st, and 156th Divisions. These men and their arms would begin the journey back to North Korea in the near future.

On September 2, 1945 VJ-Day, Ho Chi Minh declared Vietnamese Independence. He was granted nominal autonomy as a member of the French Union but within a year war had broken out and the French were trying to quell the uprising.

Stalin will invite Ho to join Mao in Moscow this month, with the admonition:

"Let's add to China's population of 475 million, the populations of India, Burma, Indonesia, the Philippines."
