Mao Zedong - 1966- 1971

Authorities allowed the Red Guards to abuse and kill opponents of the regime. As a result, in August and September 1966, there were a reported 1,772 people murdered by the Red Guards in Beijing alone. Lin was later officially named as Mao's successor. By 1971 a divide between the two men became apparent. Official history in China states that Lin was planning a military coup or an assassination attempt on Mao.
