Military historian Geoff Babb discussed the influence of the United States, Europe; Japan, and Russia in early 20th century China. Babb argued that the Chinese communist movement was largely a consequence of World War I -- born in May of 1919 with student movements against several issues -- including what they saw as unfair terms and imperial bias in the Treaty of Versailles. Geoff Babb traces this history and the unintended consequences of western influence up until the 1949 founding of communist China. The National World War I Museum and Memorial hosted this event and provided the video. close
