Lessons from Mukden

Mukden_1931_japan_shenyang

I am writing an article for my Periodical of the Society for Geography about the Mukden incident in Manchuria. My father is an expert in Japanese affairs and we spoke this evening about what Mukden may mean for Germany. First and foremost, the Japanese victory showed the total ineffectiveness of the League of Nations. The Japanese Army did precisely what it wanted and there have been no repercussions. Hitler has already expressed his disdain for the decrepit League and now it shows its impotence to the world. Herr Hitler is taking notes and the Mukden incident may embolden him in the future. Keep an eye on the Japanese – they are expanding in the Far East just as Hitler espouses similar plans here in central Europe.
