In this Part 7 episode, the decade of battling warlords is coming to an end.  Anhui and Zhili, then Zhili and Fengtian...and then Zhili and Fengtian again.

The last of these series of clashes between warlords contending for supremacy in China will be the Anti-Fengtian War (covered in this very episode).  After 1925 everyone had had enough with these military governors. 

Was anyone going to step up and take them on and deal with the warlords once and for all? 

In these final years, it won't be warlords fighting each other as much as they will be fighting for their own survival.
