Political power grows out of the barrel of a gun.
— Mao Zedong

Mao Zedong was a Chinese politician, revolutionary, and military leader who founded the People’s Republic of China (PRC) after his victory in the Chinese Civil War in 1949. He was born in 1893 in Hunan province, growing up influenced by Chinese nationalist politics before helping to found the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) in the 1920s. In the late 1920s, the Chinese communists split with the nationalist Kuomintang (KMT) under the leadership of Chiang Kai-shek, leading to the start of the Chinese Civil War. This was interrupted with Japan’s invasion of China in 1937, but with the end of World War II in 1945 the Chinese Civil War resumed, leading to the communist triumph in 1949.

As a military leader, Mao gained notoriety for his strategy centered around fighting a “protracted” war. This was a framework for a guerrilla force fighting an industrially equipped army over a long period of time. There were three stages in Mao’s ideal version of protracted war: first, the enemy strategic offensive, in which the guerrillas trade space for time; second, the enemy strategic defensive (or equilibrium), in which the offensive overextends itself into guerrilla territory; and third, the counter-offensive, in which the guerrillas transition to conventional or traditional, positional warfare as they launch their own offensive. Furthermore, Mao elaborated three types of waging protracted war (guerrilla warfare, mobile warfare, and conventional/positional warfare) that loosely correspond to the three stages of protracted war.

The great strength of Mao’s protracted war was that it offered the framework for psychological resilience on the part of the guerrilla forces, since it created a vision of victory based on people rather than materiel. After the end of the Chinese Civil War, Mao remained one of the paramount political figures in the CCP, committing Chinese forces to the Korean War (as well as conflicts in Vietnam and Cambodia) and overseeing catastrophic agrarian and cultural policies like the Great Leap Forward and the Cultural Revolution. He died in 1976.

Mao Zedong: GreenGreenGreenGreenGreen

It was a clear day in a rural area of the countryside. Mao Zedong and four soldiers of the People's Liberation Army were on patrol in a abandoned town, waking through the rubble of what used to be the center of town. As they round the corner of what used to be a schoolhouse, they notice a group of Cuban rebels in a bombed out market. Mao shouts "反革命分子!快速射擊!" and the PLA machine gunner opens up with his ZB vz. 26, killing a Cuban rebel who was smoking a cigar outside the market before he could grab his M1A1 Thompson. Red Fidel Castro and the other Cuban rebels run through the back of the market as Mao and his PLA soldiers follow suit. As Mao and his troops emerge from the rear of the market a Cuban rebel turns around and fires his M1918A2 BAR at the group of Chinese soldiers. Mao jumps behind the corner of the building neighboring the market, and three of his PLA soldiers manage to duck away from the barrage of lead, but the PLA machine gunner is not as lucky, he is hit six times in the chest and falls to the ground dead. Green Mao immeadiately moves out from behind the cover of the buildings corner and kills the Cuban machine gunner with his vz. 24. Red The chase continues into the nearby forest. Fidel and his rebels stop for a moment after they hear nothing behind them. Fidel looks around to examine his surroundings, and notices movement near some rocks seventy feet away. Fidel aims his Winchester Model 70 and sees a PLA solier readying his Mondragón F-08 sticking out from behind one of the rocks. Fidel takes a shot with his Winchester Model 70 and takes the PLA soldier down with a headshot. Green Then a Cuban rebel with an M1 Garand fires on the Chinese position. The M1 Garand weilding rebel empties his rifle, the en bloc clip ejects with its infamous pinging sound, and with this sound the Chinese advance toward the Cubans. One PLA soldier lets loose with his Tsing Tao MP 18 in his charge toward Catsro, killing the rebel with the empty M1 Garand. Red The other rebel however, kills the Tsing Tao MP 18 weilding PLA soldier with his M1 Garand, Green only to be killed by Mao's other PLA soldier weilding a Mondragón F-08 immeadiately after. Red Castro, realizing that his allies are gone, retreats further into the forest. After running through the forest for around ten minutes, Fidel eventually comes across a small, abandoned airstrip. He climbs up the rickety old air traffic control tower's stairs just as Mao and his last PLA soldier run out of the forest. Fidel, now at the top of the tower, aims and fires his Winchester Model 70, killing the Mondragón F-08 weilding PLA soldier. Green Mao is in full sprint toward the tower now, ditching his vz. 24 for his Hanyang C.96. With Mao now climbing up the tower's steps, Fidel drops his Winchester Model 70, and pulls out a M1911A1, and ducks down in the small control room at the top of the tower, waiting for Mao. Fidel blind fires his M1911A1 out of the door when he hears footsteps aproaching, emptying the pistol. As he tries to reload the door bursts open, Mao points his Hanyang C.96 at Castro's head, and pulls the trigger. The bullet strikes him in the forhead, killing him instantly. Red Mao hoists his Hanyang C.96 in the and shouts in victory "對的人!".

Mao stands over a map of the region, planning out his soon to be launched invasion of Cambodia. Two soldiers stand outside of his room, armed with MP18s. A Chinese soldier patrols outside with his own MP18, and finally a Chinese light machine gunner sets up his ZB vz. 26.

The second Chinese soldier fires two bullets into Pol Pot’s side, but the final Khmer Rouge member saves him by pumping the Chinese soldier full of lead. Black2

The Khmer Rouge member reloads when suddenly a door flings open and Mao opens fire with his own Tokarev, killing both the Cambodians. Red Red

Lowering his pistol, he sighed. He realized his invasion will have to wait…but at least the enemy leader is dead.

Expert's Opinion[]

Although Pol Pot's weaponry was more devastating, his troops' lack of training and experience hindered their ability to use them well. Mao's troops were experienced, trained, and Mao himself was a superior tactician.

Expert's opinion[]

Mao, despite be very brutal and had more advanced weapons than Lenin's ones, he wasn't organizated, skilled and intelligent than the own Lenin, who he has organizated, accurated, experienced and skilled.

In other words, Lenin had better tactics than Mao's, one of the most important factors to contributed to Lenin's victory against Mao.
