Republic of China

View Taiwan in a larger map
Taiwan (Formosa) is the principal island in the Republic of China. The island was under
Japanese control from 1895 until the end of World War 2 in 1945 when the island reverted to
China. Our postcards all date from before WW2 and thus from the period of Japanese rule.
Since WW2 Taiwan has been under the ROC whose forces under Chiang Kai-shek were
defeated by the Communists and retreated to the island. Naturally Taiwan is still claimed by the
Peoples' Republic of China
