“A million is not a large number”


The impact of Bolshevism was not confined to the shattered Russian Empire. The huge but economically backward and brutally repressive regime in China quickly found itself being rocked by dissent and outright revolt, as, inspired by the example of their Russian counterparts, its peasant population decided en masse that enough was enough.

Unsure what to make of this dynamic new presence on their borders, Stalin and his ministers at first attempted to gain some kind of control of the nascent Communist regime by offering “advisors” who would install themselves in key positions to observe and exploit the Chinese weaknesses. When Operation Barbarossa, Stalin’s long dreamt-of “revenge” attack against the West, was in its planning stages, he at first attempted to gain the support of the Chinese. When this was not forthcoming, he ordered these “advisors” to sabotage key facets of the infant Chinese economy, hoping to blame these acts on the West and enlist Chinese support that way.

The plan backfired spectacularly. Many Asiatic and Oriental governments (notably Korea, Vietnam and Indonesia), which had all experienced the effects of the Bolshevik revolution, had found themselves gradually drawn into the Chinese orbit and gratefully accepted the offer of alliance with the world’s most populous nation that was now put to them. On April 4, 1949, the Chinese & Asian Communist Federation (commonly abbreviated to ChiComs) was formally brought into being.

Undaunted, Stalin sent his legions across the border. At first they were devastatingly successful, as the poorly armed and trained ChiComs were hurled back. But gradually, the ChiComs overwhelming numerical superiority began to tell. Now, however, the ChiCom Federation faces enemies without and within, from the decadent capitalist Western Alliance to the fanatics of the Jihad Pact and the sinister threat of The Brotherhood.
