Program Description

The second part of the China In Revolution traces the next threat that Chiang Kai-shek and China faced: the Japanese, who launched World War II in Asia when they invaded China in 1937. Chaing emerged from the war as a national hero, but escalating tensions between the Nationalists and Communists soon erupted into civil war.

On October 1, 1949, Mao Ze-dong declared Communist rule in China. The story of how the Communists rebuilt their strength and won this war is one of the little known and fascinating parts of China in Revolution.
