Episode Summary

Oriental Communism 1946-1989
China, Indo-China, & Korea 1949 - 1989 China's war with Japan had only temporarily overshadowed a much longer struggle for supremacy between Mao Tse-Tung's Communists and Chiang Kai-Shek's Nationalists. By 1949 this had been settled, with the Communists taking over potentially the most powerful country in the world. This programme shows how this victory led to more than 30 years of struggle, as the last colonial powers were ejected from Asia, and then the Communists fought to become their successors in Korea and Indo-China.* Mao Tse-Tung Seizes Power* Surrender at Dien Bien Phu* North Korean Blitzkrieg * The Sacking of General MacArthur* Mao's Cultural Revolutionmoreless
