I have some questions about the Battle of Shanghai or more specifically the Battle for Luodian that took place during the Battle of Shanghai. This was during the Second Sino-Japanese war.
I used Google Translate to read this website

8月26日上午7时,敌人两个联队对罗店再次发动攻击 = At 7 a.m. on August 26, the two enemy teams launched an attack on Luodian again.

到了9月4日,蒋介石大发雷霆,给他们冷冷地甩下一句话:“今天如果夺不回罗店,师以上军官统统就地处决!” = On September 4th, Chiang Kai-shek was furious and gave them a cold rejection: "If you can't return to Luodian today, you will be executed on the spot!"

I find the dates confusing cause this site states that the Battle for Luodian only took place between 11 to 15 September 1937 and not on August 26 or September 4th .  Can anyone help clear up the confusion?

Between September 11th & 15th 1937 seems about right as it came at about the midpoint of the battle of Shanghai.

What a handsome figure of a dragon. No wonder I fall madly in love with the Alani Dragon now, the avatar, it's a gorgeous dragon picture.
