Epoch-making Long March' s 70th anniversary

The 38-year interval in mainland Chinal between the collapse of the last feudal dynasty Qing in 1911 and the establishment of the People's Republic of China or New China in 1949 was a chaotic, confusing and depressing period reigned by decadent warlords and corrupt factions of the degenerated Kuomintang but the Red Army's Long March and its success (1934-1936) changed the course of that nation's modern history. Coincidentally, when I was in Guangzhou last month, the whole country was commemorating the 70th anniversary of the truly heroic 25,000-li Long March of the Workers' and Peasants' Red Army.
