American aid to Jiang’s Nationalists failed because they did not operate as a united front and would often bicker among themselves. This is the main reason why the Japanese were able to push so deep into China. Additionally, since the country was so unstable and led by many warlords, these leaders competed for the funds and did not let these funds reach the populace they were intended to reach. And while Nationalist warlords were expensive, their armies proved ineffective, often evading battles and thus allowed Mao an easier time conquering.
