There were three major battles in the Chinese Civil War of these battles were Huaihai Campaign (also known as Battle of Hsupeng or Battle of Xu-Bang), Liaoshen Campaign which is the abbreviation of Liaoning-Shenyang Campaign (also known as Battle of Liaoshi), and Pingjin Campaign (also known as the Battle of Pingjin).
The Pingjin Campaign started on November 1948, and ended on January 31, 1949 making it last for 64 days in total.
The Liaoshen campaign started on September 12, 1948 , and ended 52 days later in November on the second.
During World War II it was envisioned that in a two-front war Europe would have to come first, and this judgment that Germany must be defeated before Japan stood as the most important single strategic concept of the war. But it was only after the start of war in Europe did the President accept a war strategy which not only assumed a two-front conflict but also made the European conflict a higher priority than the fight with Japan. This debate during the early 1940’s pitted commanders such as MacArthur and Marshall against each other, and these feuds were not forgotten after the end of the war.
Long-time rivals, in many ways Marshall and MacArthur represented different viewpoints: moderate conservative versus committed right-winger, Europe-first versus concentration on Asia, and limited war versus total war. Indeed, formulation of policy towards the Soviet Union in what eventually became the Cold War followed the same pattern, ultimately with the same Europe-first conclusion.

The first round of the Chinese civil war was won not by Mao Tse-tung, but by Chiang Kai-shek’s Kuomintang, which broke an alliance of convenience with the Communists on its way to the establishment of a new National government in 1928.
