Chinese Civil War
Summary of the Chinese Civil War
China's economy had a huge impact on the war. China had a lot of money to use, but they decided to us it on troops and the army to invade and take over Japan. They could have used some of the money to help out the people in China who really needed it. China was impacted by its poor taxation base, the increase of military spending, and the widespread corruption. These things were so bad for the economy because they were always focused on war.
Mao Zedong was the leader of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). He had a lot of different plans and tactics to go into war. He launched various attacks against the Chinese Soviet Union and they were very successful attacks in the first four attempts. However, Mao lost the fifth attempt to Nationalist leader, Chiang Kai-shek and after that, Mao was removed as chairman. When we was not the leader anymore, Mao began to come up with different strategies to attack and confuse the enemy. Mao became the leader of the CCP after the Long March ended on October 20,1935. Mao stayed as a leader to defeat the Nationalist and proclaimed the People's Republic of China.
During the Chinese Civil War, there was a lot of things happening because of where the war took place. There were a lot of people in poverty. Hyperinflation was happening and many people were poor, so they weren't able to afford and buy things they needed. There were more and more people starving and it ruined the lives of many Chinese people. There was mostly no money because all of the money China had, was used on war and troops and had none for the people themselves. The weather conditions also affected the way these people lived and it was bad because some would die when it was too cold.
