Beiping( Beijing Today) in 1948.

the head of Chinese government at that time, Marshal Chiang Kai-shek.

in 1945, He led chinese to defeat Japanese and win WW II and his reputation rose to the peak.

But only 3 year later, his government was on the edge of collapsion . Marshal Chiang himself also became unpopular among people.
