Chinese Nationalist. He was a Chinese military and political leader who became leader of the Kuomintang Party after the death of Sun Yat-sen. He led China in the Second Sino-Japanese War (much of which was part of World War II). During the Chinese Civil War (1926 to 1949), Chiang fought the Chinese Communists but failed, forcing the Kuomintang to evacuate to Taiwan, where he re-established the Republic of China and remained its president until his death. He is temporarily interred in Tzuhu, Taiwan, but in late 2005 his remains will be re-interred at Wuchih Mountain Military Cemetery in Hsichih, Taipei County, Taiwan.
