Subject

Chiang Kai-Shek during the Great Leap Forward.

Description

Whilst Taiwan was portrayed as an economic backwater by the CCP during the Great Leap Forward, Chiang Kai-Shek refuted this during the Great Famine by airdropping grain supplies to mainland China. Aware the nation was in crisis, Chiang also hatched plans to invade the mainland but these never came to fruition, mainly due to a lack of US support. Taiwan would soon begin to focus its energies on economic development rather than the hope of a Nationalist reunification.
