Air Strike also known as “The Bombing” is a Chinese action war-drama film directed by Xiao Feng about the Japanese bombings of the Chinese city Chongqing during World War II. This movie is based on untold true story, set in 1943 during the World War II, the story revolves around the Japanese bombing of Chongqing, which started in 1938.
Chongqing was the provisional capital of the Nationalist government of the Republic of China from 1937 to 1945. The Japanese would often target business areas as well as schools and hospitals, most likely with the aim of terrifying the Chinese government.
The death tolls resulting from these raids were huge. On June 5, 1941, the Japanese made more than 20 sorties over the course of three hours. Some residents tried to hide from the bombs in a tunnel, but 4,000 of them died through asphyxiation which means the state or process of being deprived of oxygen, which can result in unconsciousness or death.
Then, around July 1939 the U.S. placed an embargo on the export of aircraft parts to Japan. This was the first time the U.S. had placed an economic sanction against that nation. However, 12 days after the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, US revealed a new, deadly fighting force.
On December 20, 1941, the Flying Tigers were first seen in the skies. They achieved innovative tactical victories from the training. News of such achievements spread fast at a time when the U.S. news was filled with stories about the Americans being defeated by the Japanese.
Before they were disbanded in 1942, the Tigers destroyed 296 enemy aircraft while only losing 14 of their own pilots.
