What is the Raping of Nanking

The Japanese General ordered that the city of Nanking be destroyed, so they went to the city and destroyed the town and most the people. The Raping of Nanking is just another antecedent of the making of World War 2. The Raping of Nanking took place during December 1937 to March 1938, it was responsible for 300,000 deaths and between 20,000 to 80,000 women were sexually assaulted. Another name that this is known for is the Nanking Massacre. Japanese terrorized the people of Nanjing. The city was left in ruins and it would take decades for the city to recover from the horrible attacks
