Has the tide of war turned for China? For two months or more the Japanese have been retreating from strategic territory which cost them thousands of casualties to occupy. Particularly important is the recapture by the Chinese of Chekiang Province and its great airfields at Chuhsien and Lishui. From these bases, as can te seen by this map, United Nations planes might easily strike at Japan itself, as well as at its supply lines to outlying fronts in the Pacific.
