League Response to Japanese Agression
This storyboard does not have a description.
An explosion was set off on a Japanese railway in Manchuria but was staged by Japan to make it seem like it was Chinese troops
Japanese soldiers marched into Manchuria claiming "self defense" almost completely unopposed despite a huge Chinese military presence
China appealed to the League of Nations for help and the League established a commission to investigate both sides
The Lytton Commission investigates both sides and gathers details about what happened and possible reasons Japan could have for going to war
While the Lytton Commission takes many more months than expected Japan expands through all of Manchuria and declares Manchukuo an independent state
The commission reports that japan should give up the territory it took saying that Japan did have interests in Manchuria, Japan did not except the report and left the League of Nations. The report was a failure as did not report on the chief goals of Japan and escalated Japan's aggression
