Lu Han (1895–1974)[1] was a KMT general of Yi ethnicity.[2]

Lu Han graduated from Yunnan Military Academy. He was commander of the First Group Army in the Second Sino-Japanese War.[3]

Lu Han, as a member of the Kuomintang, provided support to the Viet Nam Quoc Dan Dang. Lu Han commanded Chinese forces occupying Indochina after the Japanese surrendered.[4]

In 1946 his forces occupied northern Vietnam for six months, between the Japanese surrender and the return of French colonial forces to the area. He was a cousin of Long Yun and succeeded him as governor of Yunnan from 1945-1949.[5] Lu Han defected to the Communists in 1949.[6]
