Chiang Kai- Shek

1887- 1975

Chinese Politician

Chiang Kai-Shek began his political career as the military aide to Sun Yat-Sen. In 1928, he became undisputed leader of the Chinese Nationalist Party. From 1932 onward, he led a war on two fronts: against the Japanese and the Communists. Chiang often found himself a supplicant to Roosevelt for money and supplies. He and Roosevelt met at the Cairo Conference in November 1943. Chiang Kai-Shek later led Nationalist forces to defeat in their battle against the Communists. He lived out the rest of his life as the leader of Nationalist China (Taiwan).
