Major Battles Fought

First was a Chinese Civil War which was fought for the freedom of China from the nationalists which resulted in a victory and formation of the People’s Republic of China. China and the Soviet Union intervened in the Korean War with the allies North Korea against South Korea backed up by the US, UK, Canada, France, and UN members. Nearly 5 million people died in the Korean War and resulted in a stalemate when the US threatened a nuclear attack. Despite the signed truce, the conflict was not settled and Korea remains divided into two nations. China is the world’s most populated country with the world’s largest number of army soldiers; approximately 2,333,000 personnel, 0.18% of the country’s population. China is increasing its military budget by 12% every year to become a super-power and stand against the US. China’s arsenal includes around 400 nuclear weapons but they’ve promised that they will never be the first one to use a nuclear attack. Like the US, China also takes part to create peace around the world and is always the first one to provide troops to the countries who are fighting a war against militants. China is really concerned for their army and recently their president Xi Jinping has put out an order to produce a quality force rather than quantity.
