"The historical event of WWII. Republic of China exploded the bank of Yellow River to stop the Janpanese attack in 1938." In 1938 the KMT decided to let the Yellow river flood an area of 54.000 km² to stop the Japanese advance. The flood indeed prevented the Japanese from taking Zhengzou, but they could capture Wuhan, the new capital of the Republic of China. Besides that, the flood caused huge suffering among the population. It is estimated that 500.000-900.000 people died plus an unknown number of Japanese troops. Note the interesting way to use the machine gun. --------------------- Evillittlekenny
