      About The Book

      This is a living history of the legendary journey that made Mao’s China. In October 1934, the First Front Army of the Chinese Communist Party fled annihilation by Chiang Kai-shek’s Nationalists. Some 80,000 men, women and children left their homes to walk with Mao into the unknown. One year, 4,000 miles and countless battles later, fewer than 4,000 were left. From these survivors would grow the army that conquered China 14 years on, changing history for ever. In October 2002, Ed Jocelyn and Andrew McEwen set off to retrace the Red Army’s footsteps, and record the experiences of the last-remaining witnesses and participants of the Long March — before it was too late. The result is an account of the March based squarely on eye-witness accounts. It contrasts starkly with the official version and with recent contentions that the March was a fraud. The Long March really did happen, but it was spun into the key propaganda tool Mao wielded in his rise to ultimate power. Bringing together the historic event, with images of a changing society and their own March — a remarkable feat of endurance in itself — the authors offer a unique picture of China, past and present.
