About Author

The Chinese Civil War was a civil war fought between the Kuomintang (KMT or Chinese Nationalist Party), the governing party of the Republic of China and the Communist Party of China (CPC).The war began in April 1927, amidst the Northern Expedition.The war represented an ideological split between the Western-supported Nationalist KMT, and the Soviet-supported Communist CPC. In mainland China today, the war is more commonly known as the War of Liberation.The civil war continued intermittently until the Second Sino-Japanese War interrupted it, resulting in the two parties forming aSecond United Front. Japan's campaign was defeated in 1945, marking the end of World War II, and China's full-scale civil war resumed in 1946. After a further four years, 1950 saw a cessation of major military hostilities—with the newly founded People's Republic of China controlling mainland China (including Hainan Island), and the Republic of China's jurisdiction being restricted toTaiwanPenghuKinmenMatsu and several outlying Fujianese islands. To this day, since no armistice or peace treaty has ever been signed, there is controversy as to whether the Civil War has legally ended.Today, the two sides of the Taiwan strait have close economic ties.
