About this item
For sale is a Pre WW2 1930s Chinese Civil War The Long March Of Mao Badge. This is in good condition.The Long March was a military retreat undertaken by the Red Army of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), the forerunner of the People's Liberation Army, to evade the pursuit of the National Army of the Chinese Nationalist Party (CNP/KMT). The Long March was a series of marches where Communist armies in the south escaped to the north and west. The most famous march was from the Jiangxi province in October 1934 to the Shaanxi province in October 1935 where the First Front Army of the Chinese Soviet Republic was on the brink of annihilation by Chiang Kai-shek's troops in their stronghold in Jiangxi province. The CCP moved in a circling retreat to the west and north, which reportedly traversed over 9,000 kilometres (5,600 mi) over 370 days. The route passed through some of the most difficult terrain of western China by traveling west, then north, to Shaanxi. Only about 8,000 out of the ~86,000 CCP that partook in the march survived. The Long March was the beginning of Mao Zedong's ascent to power. His leadership during the retreat gained him the support of the members of the party.
