Chahar was a province in north China, comprising the eastern portion of Inner Mongolia. It was organized in 1928 but was occupied by the Japanese in 1937 under the future wartime premier, Tojo Hideki. The Chahar operation went smoothly except for a setback at P'ing-hsing-kuan (Pingxingguan: 113.959E 39.346N), Geographically, the province consisted of the easternmost Gobi Desert, north of the Great Wall, and a much smaller but more densely populated mountainous region south of the Great Wall that included the provincial capital of Kalgan.
The province was abolished in 1952.
