Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Battle of the Paracel Islands was an engagement fought between the naval forces of the People's Republic of China and the Republic of Vietnam (South Vietnam) in the Paracel Islands on January 19, 1974. The tiny, uninhabited Paracel Islands, called Quan Dao Hoang Sa (Qu n o Ho ng Sa) in Vietnamese (Hoang Sa Islands) and Xisha Qundao in Chinese (Xisha Islands), lie in the South China Sea roughly 200 miles from the nearest Asian mainland shore. With no native population, the archipelago's ownership has been in dispute frequently since the early 20th century.show more
