Mao's son may have died because Chinese commanders erroneously expected a rerun of the denouement of the Chinese Civil War, where their capitalist running dog opponents would give ground easily and surrender en masse. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mao_Anying Despite being posted in the rear at PVA HQ, as befitting the Crown Prince, he fell victim to a UN airstrike.
    Be careful when discussing Mao Zedong in 1950-53. He was first among equals then, and not until after the 8th National Party Congress (1956) was he anything more. Mistakes he made pre-8th required self-criticism, which did not happen later, even after the Great Leap Forward.
