In this week’s episode, we begin a multi-part series covering the Chinese Civil War from 1945 to 1949.  In China, this is known as the War of Liberation.  In this Part 1, we will look at the background leading up to the war as well as failed attempts by the Americans in 1945-1946 to mediate a peace between Mao’s Communists and the Nationalists led by Generalissimo Chiang Kai-shek.
