Episode 3: The Power Game-Chiang Kai-shek and His Families (Enhanced DVD)
After finally consolidating the power of China into a single Republic, Chiang Kai-shek found himself amidst a major political split between the Nationalists and Communists. The final part of this series picks up in this uncertain time, just before the start of World War II. Almost miraculously, the feuding parties of Chiang Kai-Shek’s China unified against a common enemy: Japan. This alliance was short-lived, however, and the Chinese Civil War once again reared, marking the slow decline of the centralized government Chiang had struggled to build. Viewers will witness this decline, as well as its effect on the families that had helped bring Chiang Kai-Shek into power, in the conclusion to this powerful series.
