Struggle for Manchuria intensifies
30 October 1945. After being blocked from entering Manchurian ports, finally Chinese government troops are landed by the U.S. fleet at Chinwangtao from where they subsequently fight their way north. Next day, Lin Piao is ordered to reorganize all Communist forces in Manchuria into a Northeastern People’s Autonomous Army. Both sides strive to strengthen their position in Manchuria in the lull before the resumption of all-out civil war.
