Diplomats in Blue

University Press of Florida

This chapter examines the 1927 incidents at the major lower Yangtze Valley city of Nanking following the Nationalist occupation of the Chinese sections of Shanghai. The first alert came on March 24 stating that Nationalist forces were converging on the city and that the southerners (Kuomintang) were looting throughout the city and killing foreigners. This chapter discusses several important factors that distinguished Nanking from other Chinese cities where the U.S. Navy was called upon to protect American lives and property.

Keywords:   Nanking, 1927 incidents, Nationalists, Shanghai, Kuomintang, looting, U.S. Navy
