Abstract

The importance of the First World War to Japan cannot be fully understood without realizing the central place that China occupied in relation to Japanese participation. While China was key to Japanese involvement, it can also be argued that concern over Japanese intentions was the crucial factor that drove China to enter the war. In its examination of how the Chinese and Japanese war policies and post-war agendas were mutually entangled, this essay will address the following questions: first, how did the Great War help shape the modern fates of both nations. Second, how did the Chinese and Japanese use the Great War to achieve their national objectives? And third, how do the War and its aftermath still affect Sino-Japanese relations?
