Battle archives of a well-known Chinese general of the Anti-Japanese War have been open to the public on Tuesday in northeast China's Jilin Province.

These precious archives recorded Yang Jingyu's 47 battles against the Japanese aggressors in the last some 100 days of his life. According to Jilin Archives, the archives was found at a headquarter site of the Japanese Kwantung Army in 1953.

Yang Jingyu, a member of the Communist Party of China (CPC), was sent to northeast China to fight Japanese troops in 1932. He fought to the end and died on the battlefield in 1940 at the age of 35. He once served as president of Northeast China Anti-Japanese Committee, secretary of the CPC Harbin Committee, secretary of the CPC Nanman Provincial Committee, and general commander and commissar of the First Northeast China Anti-Japanese Joint Army.

This year marks the 75th anniversary of the victory of the Chinese People's War of Resistance Against Japanese Aggression and the World Anti-Fascist War.
