The Battle of Chamdo (Chinese: 昌都之战), also referred to as the Invasion of Tibet, the Chinese invasion of Tibet, or officially in China as the Liberation of Tibet was a military campaign by the People’s Republic of China against a de facto independent Tibet in Chamdo after months of failed negotiations. The purpose of the campaign was to capture the Tibetan army in Chamdo, demoralize the Lhasa government, and thus exert powerful pressure to send negotiators to Beijing to sign terms recognizing Chinese sovereignty over Tibet. The campaign resulted in the capture of Qamdo and further negotiations between the PRC and Tibetan representatives, eventually resulting in the incorporation of Tibet into the People’s Republic of China.
