To consolidate the military power in the Southern China, Chiang Kai-shek moved the government of Chinese Nationalist Party from Wuhan to Nanjing in 1927. After the Chinese Nationalist Party announced the unification of China, Nanjing was also named as the National Capital in 1928. In 1929, the National Capital Programme was officially launched to re-image Nanjing as a more prosperous capital than the Western countries as Chiang Kai-shek attempted to reconstruct this ancient capital into another modern Washington D.C. The reconstruction programme was way more than an urban development scheme, the complex politics surrounding it was triggered within 10 years. The fantastic dream failed at the end beyond money and war. The programme decodes the inextricable linkage between the destiny of The Chinese Nationalist Party and Nanjing.
