Wartime History
During early May 1939, a force including 20 Manchukuoan police and several Japanese Kempeitai (military police) were stationed here.

Following the Yamagata Detachment offensive against Soviet and Mongolian forces at the Khalkhin Gol (Nomonhan Incident), wounded were transported aboard trucks to Amukulang on May 30, 1939. On June 2, General Komatsubara flew to Amukulang and Kanchuerhmiao to pray for the detachment's war dead and address the troops.

On June 19, Soviet planes attacked Kanchuerhmiao, bombing from 50-100m, casualties were small but fuel and grain stores were destroyed.
