comment Historical examples of secessionist movements fighting alongside their de jure governments
Sure, they had exclusive power over some territory, but the intent was to take over all of China rather than to secede and in the meantime, no one (including themselves) recognised that territory as being a separate country, so to classify them as secessionist would be very tenuous and doesn't address what the questioner is asking.

The CCP wasn't secessionist.

comment What is considered to be the pivotal battle between Caesar and Pompey?
@Drux Can't help you out with any modern literature on this period, unfortunately, as I haven't read any myself. Of the ancient sources, I found Caesar's to be the most detailed and interesting.

comment Why China was able to unify and not Europe
How does the ability to expand allow for easier reunification? I would have thought it was the other way around. Also, China has plenty of mountains. If you want to make the claim that they're in unimportant places, I'd like to see some citations. Off the top of my head, I can cite the case of the mountains in Hanzhong as a huge barrier to reunification during the three kingdoms period.
