Diplomats in Blue

This chapter examines the role of the Asiatic Fleet in the so-called Shanghai Incident of January 1932. As long as the major fighting between the Chinese and the Japanese was confined to Manchuria, the Fleet followed their usual routine, retiring for the winter of 1931-1932 to the Philippines and leaving in Chinese waters the gunboats of the Yangtze and South China patrols. However, the outward show of non-involvement abruptly ended in late January 1932 with the outbreak of fighting between the Chinese and Japanese at Shanghai in the so-called Shanghai Incident. This chapter highlights the growing antagonism between the Chinese and Japanese in Shanghai and the intensified Chinese hostility against the Japanese following the movement by the Kwantung Army into Manchuria.
