Postwar Diaries of Chiang Kai-shek Open for Research on July 18, 2008

From Hoover Institution:

The diaries of from 1946 to 1955 are available to researchers at the Hoover Library and Archives as of July 18, 2008. They join earlier Chiang diaries from 1917 to 1945, which were opened in 2006 and 2007.

As this group of diaries opens (in 1946), control of China teetered between Nationalists and Communists as their civil war resumed. Chiang led the Nationalist government and its army, which gradually lost territory in the north to the Communists, led by Mao Zedong.
