Mao was a Chinese military and political leader, who led the Communist Party of China to victory against the Kuomintang in the Chinese Civil War, and was the leader of the People’s Republic of China from its establishment in 1949 until his death in 1976.
Mao Zedong, also known as Mao Tse-tung, established the Chinese Communist Party, militarily took over the most populous country in the world, and inspired Communist movements in scores of other countries. Through both his direct actions and widespread distribution of his ideas through his writings, Mao established himself as a preeminent Communist and one of the most influential politico-military leaders of the twentieth century.
