Chiang acceded to Russian demands to let MaoБЂ™s men hang on to their territorial gains and stay in the heartland of China near Nanjing and Shanghai. Mao had been quick to see how helpful Western journalists like Snow could be to his cause, but slow to appreciate how useful the British and American governments could be in tying ChiangБЂ™s hands. His hostility to both states had been extreme.
