Historical Background:
The Elite Chinese 200th Division had been sent into Toungoo to help stabilize the ruptured front lines in Burma. They set up a well organised defence of the ancient walled city. After capturing Rangoon the Japanese moved toward Toungoo and begun probing the Chinese defences from the South, North and West searching for a weakness. They did not find one and finally frustrated, the Japanese ordered a general attack from 3 sides. Their only success on the first day was by the 112th Regiment who managed to penetrate the Chinese defence in the Native quarter of the town. The Japanese were brutal in their assault, setting fire to any buildings suspected of housing Chinese troops, and showing no mercy. But the Chinese were tenacious in defence and inflicted very heavy casualties on the attackers. Only when the Native quarter was smoking ruins did the Chinese withdrawal to the English quarter where their street barricades finally halted the Japanese advance.
