The Men Who Lost China Information

The Men Who Lost China is a documentary film created by Mitch Anderson. Released in 2013, the documentary explores the United States' attitude towards China following the 1911 Chinese Revolution and the First World War, and how this and the attitude of other Western nations at the time helped shape China's national identity and in particular, its foreign policy and alignment with the former Soviet Union.

Subject matter

This documentary explores the US and European policies towards the Chinese Revolution of 1911 and the Middle Kingdom's involvement in World War One. As today's China is gaining its undisputed superpower status, the world press still speculates over its intentions. The documentary suggests that any worthy prediction must be rooted in the diligent study of past events and the comprehension of the Western and Chinese perception of these events. The US involvement in the Chinese Revolution of 1911 and the perceived Western betrayal in the aftermath of World War One are the two most pivotal points in Chinese modern history that this documentary examines. The documentary is subtitled in English, Chinese and Spanish.
