Imagine that you are an American political consultant in 1940 who has been assigned to China. You were able to visit both Chiang Kai-shek’s temporary Nationalist (KMT) government in Chongqing and Mao Zedong’s Communist (CCP) government in Yan’an. Which political regime would you recommend the U.S. support as the leaders of a united China after Japan has been defeated? Present your case for either side (or perhaps an alternative arrangement?), and support your argument using historical examples. Use source included and one other source.
