He is officially held in high regard in China where he is known as a great revolutionary, political strategist, and military mastermind who defeated Generalissimo Chiang Kai-shek in the Chinese Civil War, and then through his policies transformed the country into a major world power. Additionally, Mao Zedong is viewed by many in China as a poet, philosopher, and visionary. However, Mao remains a controversial figure to this day, with a contentious and ever evolving legacy. Critics blame many of Mao’s socio-political programs, such as the Great Leap Forward and the Cultural Revolution, for causing severe damage to the culture, society, economy, and foreign relations of China, as well as a possible death toll in the tens of millions.
