The Battle of Hong Kong 1941 was a significant battle during the Pacific War that saw Chinese, British, Indians and Canadian fighting off a Japanese invasion of Hong Kong.

▶️In this documentary we will explain the Battle of Hong Kong 1941 which was performed the same morning as the attack on Pearl Harbor. The Empire of Japan invaded the British Crown Colony of Hong Kong which was defended by Chinese, British, Indian and Canadian forces.
