Played in December 2016.

This is featured in S&T 116. The map is rather garish, but I don't know of any other games on the Taiping Rebellion. This is a unique game designed by Richard Berg. After getting by the components, I found a cool story in the game play. I like it. There is a detailed replay in my CSW Blog.

The map looks as though it was designed by someone who was trying a Paint program for the first time.

A slightly earlier rebellion in China. Considering it was one of the worst catastrophes in human history, it hasn't been gamed much. May not be a member of "The Hotness," but I think Richard Berg deserves a medal just for tackling it as a game design.

France was also involved in the Second Opium War which is included in Richard Berg's Manchu covering the Taiping Rebellion, if my memory serves me right there's a 10-6 French counter as well as a 10-6 British counter in this game.There were also wars in Vietnam and Korea (1866) not covered in this game.

Jonathan D. Spence, God's Chinese Son: The Heavenly Kingdom of Hong Xiuquan (1996)

Hong Xiuquan was a failed candidate for the provincial civil service examinations in Guangdong, who in 1837 had a religious vision of going to Heaven, where he met his Heavenly Father and Heavenly Elder Brother, and was sent back to Earth to fight the demon devils plaguing mankind. With the help of the texts of Christian missionaries, he eventually interpreted this to mean that he was the literal son of God and younger brother of Jesus. As Hong and his growing band of followers were harassed by local authorities who thought Christianity of any kind a threat to the social order, he came to identify the demon devils with China's Manchu rulers, the Qing dynasty.

Breaking into open rebellion in the early 1850s, Hong's followers, known as the Taiping ("Great Peace") went on to conquer a vast swath of east-central China around the Yangzi river and its tributaries, and was only put down by the Qing forces in 1864, by which time perhaps 20 million people had died in the fighting and accompanying starvation and epidemics. While ultimately victorious, the Qing where permanently weakened because to defeat the Taiping they had to accept and encourage the formation of regional armies outside the direct control of the central government, which would remain a feature of Chinese politics until the Communist takeover almost a century later.

The role of the Western Powers in all this was ambiguous, with Great Britain and France going to war with the Qing in 1858-60, indirectly helping the Taiping, but in 1863-64 they helped the Qing to finally quell the rebellion*. Some have argued that they picked the wrong side here, and that instead helping the Taiping vanquish the decadent and xenophobic Qing would have left China with a native, modernizing, and pro-Western regime. Spence's account makes this seem naive: A messianic movement with universal aspirations, the Taiping were even less inclined than the Qing to accept foreign powers as equals, and Christianity would have served at least as much to sunder as to unify because Western Christians would never have accepted Hong's claim to be God's literal son, which of course was central to Taiping theology. As for modernization, Hong made some noises in favour of Western-style reforms, but nothing came of it and theocratic regimes have rarely if ever been successful modernizers.

Consonant with the title, Spence puts much focus on Hong himself. Early on he was an active military and administrative leader; with time he withdrew increasingly to his palace, spending his time revising(!) and commenting the Bible, while leaving day-to-day management to his generals and ministers. He died in 1864, just weeks before the fall of Nanjing, his capital, to the Qing forces, possibly from eating weeds that he believed to be manna sent from Heaven to relieve the famished city.

The book is an excellent read, with full scholarly apparatus but not at all dry. The viewpoint is either that of the Taiping themselves or that of Western traders, missionaries, or soldiers, almost never that of the Qing, or of locals caught up in the struggle without strong commitment to either side. Almost no attention is paid to lesser (but in themselves still formidable) revolts that rocked China in the 1850s and '60s.


* An old acquaintance of mine turns up here, Charles "Chinese" Gordon earning his nickname leading British-trained Chinese soldiers, a generation before gaining greater fame for the defense of Khartoum against the Mahdists.
