Entente against Internationale: Phase 7
Despite the desperete defense, Chinese republicans couldn't stop enemy invasion. In the South, Indian armies were taking last chunks of Burma away from Bengal. French carrier group attacked Bengali fleet that was stationed in port of Yangon and sank Bengali fleet carrier. When Bengali fleet left the devastated port, Bengali ships were ambushed by Indian and French fleets and remaining Bengali carrier force was destroyed.
In the North America, tide had turned against the Syndicalists. Entente liberated more territories, and even more Syndicalist forces were knocked out from war.
In South America, Colombians fought to stop the Red tide that was moving into Colombia. Russians established strong foothold in South America, but failed to make new advances towards Venezuela and Brazil.
Soon, Republican China fell. Sad news for Entente were accompanied by strange report about the sudden Japanese move in East Asia. When Qing forces were about to enter city of Shanghai, last fortress of Chinese republicans, combined Japanese-Korean assault on the city happened. Chinese republicans were too confused to react and forces of Greater East Asia Co-Prosperity sphere occupied one of largest Chinese cities. Qing Empire protested because of this Japanese move, but Japanese responded that such action was neccessary to protect Japanese security. Republicans surrendered to both Qing and Japanese officers: Military governor of Shanghai surrendered city to Japanese, and surrendered leaders of Chinese republic signed unconditional capitulation to Qing Empire in Ningbo. Shanghai became some kind of Japanese protectorate, a city with inner autonomy and fortified Japanese foothold in China, garrisoned by Japanese forces and surrounded by Qing armies. Qing Empire also enforced an old agreement with AlgOstAsien GmbH, which granted rightful Chinese territories to Qing Empire in case of destruction of Chinese republic. As a mere puppet of German Empire wihtout it's own will, semi-independent conglomerate of corporations surrendered it's possessions in China to Qing Empire.
