The Chinese Revolution

By: Hudson, Emma, and Isaac

How did geography affect the Chinese Revolution?

During 1926, Guomindang and the Chinese Communists led the Long March to conquer the warlords that had expanded their territory to the north. Around 100,000 men traveled across raging rivers and rugged mountains. These obstacles killed a large majority of those who risked the trek. The Long March was a symbol of heroism in the Chinese Revolution.

How was the society organized during the Chinese Revolution? How well did it function?

Mao Zedong, the leader of the Communists, was an optimistic leader who lead the communists in china through tough times. It was difficult at points to keep everything organized, especially during the Long March, which was a dark time for China. Jiang Jieshi, leader of the Nationalists, and Mao were fighting over China. They had before worked as a team to fight of Japan who had tried to invade. This conflict had put the Chinese Communist through a lot of tough times.

Chinese Nuclear Weapons

China has developed nuclear submarines that carry nuclear bombs on them. They have been training and can now let off bombs underwater. They were planning on bombing heavily populated areas like California but, the radiation could travel as far as Chicago Illinois. They recently tested an intercontinental ballistic missile called the ICBM. The ICBM has a range of 3,400 miles. Everything that is in the area of the explosion will be incinerated or will be killed because of the high radiation levels from the explosion.
