The Battle of Yunlin-Chiayi was fought in the Yunlin-Chiayi region during the Japanese invasion of Taiwan. It was one of the very few major counter-offensive the Formosan initiated on the Japanese, and possibly the only successful one. Although the Formosan succeeded in recapturing Yunlin, they were eventually driven out in a subsequent series of Japanese assaults on the city.[1]
