Chinese Civil War: Nationalists
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.
Although one of the founding fathers of the the Nationalists was also instrumental to the overthrow of the Qing dynasty and served as provisional president of the new republic, the Nationalists have yet to earn full control of China. More importantly, the KMT has yet to remove the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) from contention for control over China. In addition, the threat from Imperial Japan casts a shadow over what might be a very short-lived republican China.
