Subject

Whampoa Military Academy

Description

Chiang's first prominent position in the Nationalist Party was as commander-in-chief of the Whampoa Military Academy. The academy was supported by Soviet funds to train up soldiers who could provide the manpower to reunite China. Before Chiang's purge of the Communists in 1927, members of both the CCP and GMD trained here. During the Chinese civil war, commanders of both army's respective troops received the same training at Whampoa.
