China : From First World War to Liberation of China

This is an introduction to China and Mao and the Civil War - it does not have the pejorative terms usually found in Western videos about China and Mao hence we have published it as a basic introduction along with other videos from same source.

After the fall of the Qing dynasty China fell apart and both, forces loyal to Chiang Kais-shek's National Kuomintang Party and as Mao Zedong's Communist Party of China, fought to rule the country.

This struggle would ultimately result in the Chinese Civil War.

It would take more than 22 years but would come to a halt during the 2nd Sino-Japanese War. 

After Japan's defeat, Mao's troops grew strong quickly and soon after they were able to force Chiang Kai-shek and his followers out of China.

They sought refuge in Taiwan. Shortly after, Mao Zedong called out the People's Republic of China. Learn all about the Chinese Civil War in this episode of Battlefields with Indy Neidell
