Chiang Kai-Shek's Residence
About this place
Chiang Kai-shek(October 31, 1887 – April 5, 1975) was a political and military leader of 20th century China.
He was an influential member of the Kuomintang and Sun Yat-sen's close ally.
He became the commandant of Kuomintang's Whampoa Military Academy and took Sun's place in the party when the latter died in 1925. In 1928, Chiang led the Northern Expedition to unify the country, becoming China's overall leader.
He served as chairman of the National Military Council of the Nationalist Government of the Republic of China (ROC) from 1928 to 1948.
Chiang led China in the Second Sino-Japanese War, during which the Nationalist Government's power severely weakened, but his prominence grew.
Chiang's Nationalists engaged in a long standing civil war with the Chinese Communist Party (CCP).
After the Japanese surrender in 1945, he attempted to eradicate the CCP.
Ultimately, bolstered by support from Soviet Russia, the CCP defeated Chiang, forcing the Nationalist government to retreat to Taiwan, where martial law was continued while the government still tried to take back mainland China.
Chiang ruled the island with an iron fist as the President of the Republic of China and Director-General of the Kuomintang until his death in 1975.
