Downfall of the Guomindang

The Second Sino-Japanese War, while a disastrous immediate cause for the downfall of Nationalist rule over China, was not the sole cause. The downfall of the Guómín Dǎng (Chinese Nationalist Party) can also be attributed to the the failures of the Nationalist Decade, and not to mention the rise of the Communists as seen in Yán’ān and the development of Máoism made therein; along with the actions of both the Red Army and the Guómín Dǎng.
