Chapter Summary

Sixty years after the CCP Politburo issued its instructions called the "Ten Great Policies" in October 1943, the CCP leaders initiated a nation-wide program to explore the legitimacy of the CCP authority and their People's Republic. By the time of Japan's defeat in August 1945, the Shandong Bureau had built a solid infrastructure in the occupied zones to enable rapid deployment into Manchuria. Successful intelligence networks and intelligence analysis must be attributed to Mao's well-calculated strategic decisions at the national level and the Shandong Bureau's correct decisions at the regional level. This conclusory chapter highlights that although China indeed needed a revolution in the early twentieth century, it was not the CCP's revolution. The CCP's revolution was, in actuality, a hijack of the Chinese National Revolution, achieved through the exploitation of the Japanese invasion. .
