        Communists Take Control | The Story of China

        Discover how the People's Republic of China was established in 1949, after the Chinese Communist Party defeated China's Nationalists in this clip from The Story of China. After the withdrawal of Japanese troops in 1945, The USA tried to persuade China's Nationalist leader Chiang Kai-shek to work together with the communists to establish a government for China, but the attempts failed, and full-scale civil war broke out between the Nationalists and the Communists. Later in 1949, The communist Red Army marched triumphantly into Beijing, where in 1949 Mao Zedong proclaimed the formation of the People's Republic of China.
