Source 3 Chiang Kai-shek (R) poses for a photo in 1936 with Zhang Xueliang (L) and Yang Hucheng on his fourth trip to Xi'an

Subject

Xi'an Incident

Description

The Xi'an incident was one of the most pivotal events in Chiang's life. Here he is pictured with his captors in the immediate aftermath of the incident. Zhang was confined to house arrest for over 50 years on both the mainland and in Taiwan whilst Yang was killed before the Nationalists retreated to Taiwan. Yang Hucheng continued to be critical of Chiang after the Xi'an incident after a relatively mild punishment of being sent to Europe on a research tour. Upon his return, he wished to regain military command and evinced communist sympathies which perhaps sealed his fate.
