Welcome back to Part 3 of our overview of the Chinese Civil War. The focus this time will be on the Liaoshen, Huaihai, and Pingjin Campaigns that not only grabbed all of north China and Manchuria for the Communists but the heartland and everything north of the Yangzi River as well.  

By the end of 1948 all treasures, gold bullion, silver, currency, and tangible assets that the KMT could get their hands on were well on their way to Taiwan….just in case.  Things had never looked grimmer for Chiang and all supporters of the Nationalist regime.
