The Battle of Taierzhuang occurred in March-April 1938, as an engagement of the Second Sino-Japanese War. It saw Chinese nationalist troops attack the "provisional army" of the Japanese-backed Provisional Government of the Republic of China. The provisional troops used their strategic positions to fight off the numerically superior nationalist forces, and gave them horrendous casualties, making it a major victory for the Japanese puppet forces. This was heavily propagandized by Japan, and was later what caused the famous Chinese general Li Zongren to join the collaborationist forces.
