CCTV News: China fought an 8-year war against Japanese aggression
The military parade on September 3 remembers the sacrifice of the millions of Chinese who stood up to the invading Japanese army. The aggression actually began as early as 1931 in northeast China, but it wasn’t until 1937 that the full-scale invasion began. The so-called “Lugou Bridge Incident” was the beginning of what turned out to be an 8-year-long war.
