Duration: 10 hours 27 minutes
The 8,000-mile journey undertaken by the fledgling Chinese Communist Party in 1934 is considered the defining moment of modern Chinese history. Seventy years later, Sun Shuyun set out to retrace the marchers' steps and to interview the aged survivors. The Long March is the stunning narrative of her extraordinary expedition. It is a gripping retelling of an amazing historical adventure, an eye-opening account of how Mao manipulated it for his own purposes, and a moving portrait of China past and present.
