Imagine leading your troops on a retreatthrough territory so deadly that it kills thousands of people. Imagine climbingthrough some of the highest mountain ranges on Earth, fording flooded riverswithout any boats or safety equipment, and crossing rickety rope bridges whileunder enemy fire. Imagine being one of the soldiers on this retreat, perhaps apregnant female soldier, possibly even with bound feet. This is the reality ofthe Chinese Red Army's Long March from 1934 to 1936. From their base in Jiangxi Province,southern China,the Red Armies set out in October of 1934, marched some 12,500 kilometers(about 8,000 miles).


In the early 1930s, the Kuomintang, thethen-ruling party of China,launched a series of attacks against the Communist Party's Red Army in centraland eastern China.After losing the fifth round of attacks in October 1934, and to save itstroops, the Red Army had to start a two-year "strategic retreat", nowknown as the Long March. It was a key moment in the civil war, and also in thedevelopment of communism in China.


This year marks the 80th anniversary of theLong March by the Red Army of the Communist Party of China. To pay homage tothe Red Army, we invite you to share your thoughts on the march. What do youthink of the soldiers, their sacrifices and their spirit, in a contemporaryera? What do you think about the civil war? And what a war means to anindividual? You are welcome to leave your comments.
