Communism in china

Mao zedong created communism in china. Mao zedong was a peasent farmer when he was young he was wealthy enough to go to school. Mao zedong the joined the CCP or china communist party. He then became leader of the red army. During the long march mao zedong and his red army where trying to scape. He lost 93,000 of his 100,000 red army soldiers but he gained support from farmers on the way. The great leap foward was when Mao zedong tried to get the farmers to work on factories but then there wasnt enough food because all the farmers where working in factories. The cultural revolution was when Mao zedong tried to change peoples type of life. There were no classes of society nobody earned more then eachoder causing people to stop working as hard as they did that made the economy go down.
