Hindustan Times ST (Mumbai) - - MYINDIAMYVOTE -

The war here mostly con­sisted of naval bat­tles and the con­quest of Ger­man colonies in China and the Pa­cific Ocean. The most sig­nif­i­cant bat­tle here was the siege of Ts­ing­tao, a Ger­man con­trolled port. Af­ter the end of the war, Ts­ing­tao be­came a bone of con­tention be­tween China and Ja­pan - the two coun­tries had been vy­ing for supremacy for years. While Ja­pan was part of the Al­lied forces, China had sent thou­sands of labour­ers to help the Al­lied forces. The is­sue of Ts­ing­tao was the rea­son the Chi­nese didn’t sign the Treaty of Ver­sailles in June 1919. The is­sue also led to a protest in China.
