Kuomintang Soldiers Expel Communist Party Members Ca. 1926Unknown - 1926
Following the Chinese revolution of 1911, the Chinese Nationalist Party (the Kuomintang) and the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) allied with one another in an attempt to bring unity to heavily splintered and warlord-controlled China. This alliance shattered in April 1927, when Kuomintang forces, led by Chiang Kai-Shek, forced Chinese Communist Party members out of Shanghai and executed a number of party leaders, driving most Chinese communists underground. Though the Kuomintang party took control of China following this struggle, Chiang's government was overthrown by Mao Zedong and the CCP in 1949.
