Kai- Shek was born October 1887 in Zhejiang, which is the eastern province in China. His father was a merchant. When he was only eighteen, he went into a military training college in Japan. He returned in 1911 to take part of an uprising that overthrew the Qing Dynasty and the uprising established a Chinese Republic. The new republic was anti-communism, conservatism and had three principles of the people. Chiang joined The Chinese Nationalist Party formed by Doctor Sun Yat-sen and he was appointed commandant of the Whampa Military Academy in Lanton in 1924.

This expedition reunited China under the National Party in Nanjing. In 1928, he also led the suppression of the Communist Party. He also over saw the program for the reformation of china but the government wanted to focus on internal problems. Chiang had to make sure the Japanese invasion of Manchuria was under control.
