This chapter examines the roots of the May 30, 1925 incident in Shanghai in the power struggle in Kwantung Province. It was there that the heirs of Sun Yat-sen were struggling to control his Kuomintang Party and where the growing communist influence on the cadets of the Whampoa Military Academy led by Chiang Kai-shek was evident. This chapter discusses the Asiatic Fleet's confrontation with the Whampoa cadets in June 1925.
