80.1 CHINESE WAR EFFORT:
80.11 RATIONALE FOR RESTRICTIONS: The Chinese war effort was hampered by Nationalist Chinese corruption, a Communist Chinese shortage of heavy weapons, and political and military infighting between Nationalist and Communist Chinese forces, which both spent considerable time and energy positioning themselves for a showdown after the war. These divisions accrued to Japan's benefit. These weaknesses are reflected in the following restrictions, which apply to the activities of both Nationalist and Communist Chinese forces.
