Threat of civil war in China
24 October 1945. Fo Tso-i, commander of Republican China’s 12th military region, cables Mao, accusing the Communist army of attacks on Shanxi and Sui-yuan in the past two months. He warns that further CCP encroachments might lead to civil war, for which the CCP would take full responsibility. Two days later, the CCP’s Xinhua News Agency dismisses Fo’s statement.
