Mao's Long March
Continued victories by the Kuomintang army under Chiang Kai-Shek, compelled the forces under Mao Tse-Tung's control to retreat in order to regroup. They undertook what has become known as "The Long March". The march covered 6,000 miles and ended in Yenan. One hundred- thousand set off on the march, but only one third survived, arriving at Yenan.
