The Shanghai Massacre: China's White Terror, 1927 (History of Terror) Kindle Edition
On 19 February 1927, the city of Shanghai fell silent as a general strike gripped the factories of the industrial district. A magnet for foreign traders and businessmen (British, French, American, then later Japanese), by the 1920s the pursuit of profit had produced one of the most cosmopolitan cities that the world has ever seen. Known as the Whore of the Orient, Shanghai was a melting pot where every imaginable experience or luxury from East or West could be enjoyed. But in 1927, the citys wealth was under threat: advancing from Guangzhou in the south of China was a Guomindang army, backed by the Soviet Union and in alliance with the Chinese Communist Party, which seemed to be a clear danger to the businessmen of Shanghai.However, the armys commander, Chiang Kai-shek, a conservative, was tiring of his allies. Plotting with Shanghais most influential gangster, Chiang planned to rid himself of the Communists once and for all. The stage was set for a bloodletting in the streets of the city of Shanghai.

Reviewed in the United States 🇺🇸 on August 2, 2020
For someone like me who is a mere amateur looking for the character of the characters who caused the history The Shanghai Massacre and the eventual fall of Chiang Kai -Shek and supremacy of Mao Zedong I recommend this book. No, Maoism and the battles of 1945 to date are omitted. Read about them elsewhere.
