The only place of resistance left in the China-Burma-India Theatre was China. The Japanse continued to penetrate the giant country. The Japanese originally planned to use China was a supply route to Indo-China, Malaya, and Burma.
The remaining Chinese in the country were all alone. The had no means of communicating with the outside world except for the smugglers that snuck out. Supplies, however, were shipped over the "hump" which was a 17,000 tall mountain barrier in the southern Himalayas. The Chinese also couldn't fight back, because of their pour training, and out-of-date technology.
The Chinese were also fighting within themselves. China was devided between nationalists and communists. For a while, they forgot their differences and went against the Japanese, but in 1941 the nationalists turned against 5,000 communists who were whiped out. Now China was split into three points of resistance: the Nationalists, the Communists, and the Japanese.
During the spring of 1944, the Japanese finally struck against the Chinese. They struck against Hunan, Kwangsi, Kwantung, and Kiangsi and hit U.S. Air Force bases in the provinces. The Chinese were devestated, and the Americans were forced to evacuate. The Nationalists were at ends with eachother, and Chiang Kai-Shek's(The leader of the Chinese) refused to go only against the Japanese. He was determined to go against the communists and the Japanese.
Finally in the summer of 1945, Chiang Kai-shek let General Stilwell lead the Chinese Nationalists into battle. This was the first time an American General had ever commanded foreign troops. The Japanese were very weak, and were battled away from the previous cities and airfields that they had taken earlier. The Japanese later evacuated when they were pinned against the Malayan border. The Japanese were gone from China, and the China-India-Burma Theatre was now at a close. China was liberated.
