The Chinese Civil War, has been regarded by many as an important subject in the study of modern Chinese history, as this protracted struggle ultimately led to the Communist victory on the Mainland and the Nationalist government's retreat to the island of Taiwan in 1949. Considered an extremely important turning point in modern Chinese history, the Civil War is also of great international significance. This resource, the first of its kind written in English, details the microscopic and macroscopic views of the Chinese Civil War; people, events, places, and institutions.
