By now, the CCP had come under the firm leadership of Mao Zedong, whose strategy of “people’s war’’ would be applied with ultimate success against Japanese occupation forces, as well as against the government of Chiang Kai-shek after the close of the Pacific War. Mao’s writings on revolutionary strategy are reminiscent in many respects of Ho Chi Minh’s own ideas on the subject, and it has sometimes been declared that the ICP borrowed liberally from the Maoist model in waging their own revolution.
One factor in the League’s success was undoubtedly the nature of its program, which reflected Ho’s adaptation of the Leninist theory of the two-stage revolution to the Vietnamese environment. The program stressed both patriotic and revolutionary themes and was aimed at a target audience consisting not only of workers and poor peasants, but also of patriotic members of the middle class and the landed gentry as well. In accordance with Leninist tactics, Ho and his colleagues in Canton sought to establish cooperation with other anticolonial parties operating in Indochina, while at the same time attempting to recruit members of such organizations into the League.
