Order of battle for battle of Nanking December 1937

Postby James Patrick » 15 May 2018 21:26

Hello to all!

Does anyone have an order of battle for Chinese forces that took part in the battle of Nanking in December 1937. I am unable to have any luck finding one.

Thank you in advance for any help that can be provided.
