Description

A file containing a Fabian Society report assessing the military strength of both the Nationalist and Communist sides during the Chinese Civil War. The report discusses the effects of American support for the Nationalists and Soviet intervention on behalf of the Communists; the differing military styles of the two sides; the excellent equipment and poor morale of the Nationalists; the inferior size and equipment but superior leadership and morale of the Communist troops; the guerrilla methods employed by the Communists; the mixed success of the Japanese when fighting the Communists during the Sino-Japanese War; and the lack of popular support for the Nationalists due to the collaboration of some of their supporters with the Japanese.
