Chinese Civil War: Communists
1930 | China
Between a Boxer Rebellion, the Opium Wars, and the fall of the Qing dynasty, the 19th and 20th centuries were not quiet ones in China. Following the fall of an imperial China, the country ruptured into ever more chaos, with the Nationalists attempting to establish a Republican China, war lords gaining control over smaller pockets of China, a communist party gaining a following, and western powers jockeying to gain great control over China. The year is now 1930. Japan has invaded Manchuria. The Nationalists and the Communists have already attempted to form a united front against Japan once before, and failed. The fate of modern China rests in your hands.
The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) may be a player in China, but it is, for now, but a small one. The CCP must fight to emerge as a serious contender for control over parts, if not all, of China. It will need to manage a dangerous minefield of other stronger players and earn the support of the Chinese people or others who hold power in shaping China's future. However, first, the CCP needs to simply survive.
