My name is Xuan Zhang, a field producer who's working for China Central Television (CCTV). Recently, we are working on a documentary TV series about the Lanzhou Campaign (1949) during the Second Chinese Civil War. In order to rich the content, we are eager to find scholars who know about Chinese Civil War history to join this project (to be interviewed). Although the focus of the project is Lanzhou campaign, we would like to talk to any experts who bring their perspectives about the series battles in Northwest China during the Civil War or other related topics.
