In 1949 the Nationalist party of China the Kuomintang KMT fled from mainland China after a civil war with the Chinese Communist Party The KMTs failure was due to poor management and widespread corruption within the party In 1912 the last Chinese Emperor abdicated with many parts of China resisting Imperial rule With this abdication China disintegrated into various smaller provinces each one rules by a different warlord Around this time two political parties formed One was a Nationalist Party the KMT founded by Sun Yat-sen The other was a Communist party the CCP From 1925 to 1927 the CCP and the KMT were united in efforts to unify China and defeat the warlords However in 1927 Chiang Kai-shek the KMT leader decided that the Communists were a threat to National unity He ordered members of the Kuomintang to turn their guns on the Communists 5 600 Communists were killed in the massacre though many fled into neighboring mountains In 1928 the KMT was far more powerful than the CCP The CCP was constantly besieged by Nationalist forces In 1934 the CCPs army fled from its Southern stronghold to its Northern province They were relentlessly harried by KMT forces and it took a year to march the long distance The Long March gave the CCP the opportunity to spread the ideals of Communism to ordinary Chinese people This made the people believe that Communism would be better for them than any of the ideals of the KMT Even while Japan sat on Chinas northern borders an army poised to invade Chiang sent his forces to assail the CCP in the south Chiang was determined to destroy the Communists In 1937 Japan invaded China and once again the CCP and the KMT were united During the years of war with Japan the KMT gained massive amounts of war aid from America However by then the KMTs leadership was failing and corruption was rampant
