That is truly scary that Chinese people actually think the Communists were a part of the battle at Nanjing. The real heroes was the KMT Nationalist army that fought and died at Nanjing against the Japanese.

The Communists were running away and nearly annihilated when the Japanese invaded. It was the Japanese that saved the Communists from defeat because the Nationalists had to change direction and focus on the immediate threat. Fighting the Japanese drained the Nationalist forces and allowed the Communists to build up to ultimately defeat the Nationalists.

It is another sign of the CCP twisting history to show themselves in a favorable light. And the Chinese public seems to follow the brainwashing.
Ironically, I've read that many Germans helped shelter chinese in the city during the incident.
I need a vector, Victor.
