When I saw Communist Chinese soldiers paraded in Red Square for celebrating the 70th Anniversary of End of WWII, I was very shocked. First of all, if I am not remembering wrong about the history I learned, the main fighting force fought against Japanese Imperial Army on the battle field in China was the Nationalist Party’s soldiers led by Chiang Kai-Shek, and Chinese Communist Party’s soldiers only engaged in much smaller scale and much fewer battles with Japanese military.
In fact, when fighting with Japanese military in the front lines, Chiang Kai-Shek’s military had to constantly defend themselves from Communist soldiers’ ambush from the back. Moreover, the Nationalist government of Republic of China retreated to Taiwan in 1949 after losing the war against the Chinese Communist Party and settled down the government over there, and believe it or not, the Republic of China has not been eliminated by the Communist Party, it still exists to this very day in Taiwan. Therefore, when I saw the Communist Chinese government claimed the credit for defeating Japan in WWII, I felt amused.
I always heard Communist Chinese government blamed Japan on TV for not telling the truth about Japan’s role in WWII to the younger Japanese generations, but Communist Chinese government is not telling the 100% truth about their role in WWII or the current existence of the Republic of China in Taiwan to their people, either.
