Japanese Attack Manchuria
On September 18th, in violation of all its treaty obligations, Japan occupied Manchuria in northeast China. It was to be the first step on the path to World War II. American reaction to the aggression came in the form of the Stimson Doctrine. This document stated that the United States would not recognize any treaty that impinged on the sovereignty of China.
