Description: A map of the Chinese Shantung (Shandong) Peninsula at the end of World War I, showing its proximity to Korea and Japan, and its strategic location between the Yellow Sea, the Gulf of Pechili (Bohai Gulf), and Port Arthur. Prior to the war, Germany had held the territory of Kiaochau on the southern portion of the peninsula. The Japanese, who had joined the Allies in declaring war on Germany, seized control of the German possessions. The transfer of the Shantung peninsula to Japan was opposed by the Chinese statesman who claimed that Germany, who ceded the territory after its defeat at the end of the first World War, possessed no rights to the land.
