Abstract:

When did World War II begin? Americans might say December 7, 1941. For Europeans, it was September 1, 1939. In China, people will tell you August 13, 1937. That day, after a century of humiliation and six years of repeated "Incidents" initiated by the Japanese military, China finally "stood up." This act of defiance took place in Shanghai, the most international city in Asia. The Battle of Shanghai has been described as the last battle of World War I and the first of World War II. At its heart, this is a story of shattered lives and enduring dreams.
