In 20th-century East Asia, nothing was more calamitous and astounding than the historic decline and subsequent rise of the Chinese nation from the “sick man of Asia” to national rejuvenation. Various political forces collided and fought with each other along the way. Never before had China seen such intense clashes between internal and external forces; never had the game (or the stakes) been more complicated; never had strategic transformation been more volatile. It fell to Mao Zedong to lead China's Red Army through the Long March of 1934-1935: a purgatory and a test of fire for the Chinese Communists. And when China finally emerged from the scourge of pitiless war, betrayal and sacrifice, the nation had been tempered by history and the times as never before. The Long March was the most epic feat in Chinese history. The Red Army and the Chinese revolution emerged from their suffering and soared to new heights like a phoenix rising from the ashes. And the bugle sounding the rejuvenation of the Chinese nation could be heard in every corner of the globe. Misery and Glory, published to great acclaim in China by bestselling author and former Major General Jin Yinan, tells the fascinating story from the Chinese point of one of the greatest and most influential events of the last 100 years. Replete with original source materials and offered in this English language edition for the first time, this work will stand as the definitive history of the Long March and its lasting impact on the Chinese nation.
