- "Beginning of the Great Revival" is set in the period between 1911, from the beginning of the Xinhai Revolution in China, and the founding of the Communist Party of China in 1921.
During the early 20th century, China was marked by political disunity, and a handful of individuals, including Mao Zedong, Li Dazhao and Zhou Enlai, envisioned a unified China. After World War I, the Western Allies gave Tsingtao and Kiaochow Bay to the Empire of Japan, stirring sentiments amongst China's youth which led to the May Fourth Movement. In March 1920, Grigori Voitinsky came to China in an attempt to spread communism to the Far East, and on 22 July 1921, thirteen representatives from throughout China met up at Shanghai's women's dormitory in what would be the beginning of the party.
