《漫话十九大》Episode4: How did the CPC become the ruling party in China?

The Communist Party of China (CPC) was established with just 58 members in 1921, at a critical time in the history of China.

The CPC successfully led a revolution to ensure national independence from feudal rule and colonial aggression, and in 1949 established the People's Republic of China (PRC) and became the ruling party.

So how did the CPC develop so fast?

The CPC was founded in 1921 by revolutionaries, and went on to lead armed struggles against local warlords, foreign powers and, ultimately, the Kuomintang government.

The CPC was locked in a civil war with the Kuomintang from 1927, which saw the CPC-led Red Army complete its epic Long March from 1934-35.

The conflict was interrupted by the Second World War, and the two parties fought jointly against Japanese aggressors from 1937 to 1945. The CPC forces grew from over 30,000 to 1.27 million during this period, and after the Japanese were driven out, the civil war resumed.
