Informations

The 1938 Yellow River flood (Chinese: 花園口決隄事件, literally 'Huayuankou embankment breach incident') was a flood created by the Nationalist Government in central China during the early stage of the Second Sino-Japanese War in an attempt to halt the rapid advance of Japanese forces. It has been called the 'largest act of environmental warfare in history' and an example of scorched earth military strategy.
