History of Guangxi Zhuang

During World War II Guangxi Zhuang was invaded as part of the Japanese Operation Ichigo. The Japanese wanted to seize Hunan-Guangxi railway link and subsequently open a link to French Indochina. As a result of the success of the Operation Ichigo, many important cities of Guangxi Zhuang came under the control of the Japanese.

As it was located in the deep South of the Republic of China, communist forces could not take control of Guangxi and only the People’s Republic of China was established.
