Songshan Monument

The soldiers of the new Songshan monument are lined up and face the double summit of Songshan Mountain.
There were a couple of big battles over the Huitong Bridge, one early in WW2 when the Japanese were trying to get into China via the Burma Road, and one late in the war, when the Allies were pushing the Japanese back. A monument was erected after the war, but then 20-odd years later it was torn down during the "Cultural Revolution". Recently a new one has been erected.

I'm still trying to sort out exactly what happened and where, but I thought this monument was pretty cool.
