He was the leader of the Chinese Communist Party and chairman of the People’s Republic of China. Mao was one of the leading figures of the twentieth century. Beyond serving as the head of the Chinese Communist Party, his ideas and policies served as a model for many other political leaders in the Communist world.
Without Mao Zedong, China wouldn’t have won the Chinese Civil War. He also helped to reshape the social and political structures of his ancient and heavily populated country. Mao’s concepts now guided the Communists in their way of thinking, their organization, and their action. In giving their faith to Mao’s belief, they found unity and strength, and an understanding of the nature, strategy, and tactics of the revolution. Without Mao, China would belong to the U.S and that would impact entirely how the world is today.
