China and India Battles Over Border
China and India disputed their mutual border. The terrain was mountainous and often difficult to defend. In 1962, battles broke out between the two countries. On October 20th China launched a full scale attack on Indian positions. The Chinese routed the Indians, and India asked for U.S. support. Two days later the Chinese announced that they were implementing a cease-fire and withdrawing.
