Chiang Kai-Shek starts over, again, in Chongqing, as the Japanese military seek to deny him the east coast. First Canton will fall, then other port cities. Meanwhile, British controlled Burma and the Nationalists work together to construct the Burma Road, so supplies can come over land. And finally, a border dispute between Japanese troops in Manchukuo and Mongolians, with their Russia allies, starts a series of events that will lead Japan to attack in SE Asia, which leads to Pearl Harbor.
