Mao’s Cold War: When India And Communist China Became Enemies

The history behind the tensions between the two most populous nations in Asia, and the world.

In light of the recent border incident between the PLA and the Indian Army, where a Chinese soldier reportedly had his ass kicked by Indian troops, I thought I would share this video with you. It provides a look into the history between India and China starting in 1949 and the border dispute between them that continues to this day.

Interviews with Chinese veterans of the conflict tell of the mindset of PLA troops and of the many hardships and sacrifices they had to endure, only to see them made in vain by Mao.

It’s an interesting watch whether you’re a student of international relations or not, and is an excellent opportunity for us to get to know just a little bit more about our enemy.
