Description

This research project looks at the German mediation of the Sino-Japanese war between late 1937 and early 1938. The goal is to examine the nature of the mediation, in order to explain whether Germany intended to play an active role in resolving the conflict between China and Japan. In order to do this, the research drew upon materials from the German Diplomatic Documents between 1937-38, Chinese Republican government files, and selected memoirs from German diplomats. It also consulted secondary sources about general Nazi German diplomatic policy. Through situating the mediation in the context of German foreign relationships, the research project aims to explore the place of East Asia in German foreign policy and war effort.
