The People's Liberation Army was the military arm of the Chinese Communist Party. They waged war first against the Kuomintang and then the Japanese with limited success. After the arrival of the Race's Conquest Fleet in 1942, the PLA quickly became one of the most prominent Chinese resistance groups. Despite the Race's refusal to recognize the Chinese communists, the PLA were a constant thorn in its side in the generations that followed.
