    In 1934 the Chinese Communist First Front Army began a strategic retreat from the Chinese Nationalist forces which resulted in a hard 6000 mile trek through the countryside of western China This is known as the Long March and is uite a remarkable story of struggle perseverance and triumph If it's true that is Having read Jung Chang's Mao I approached Ms Fritz's account of the Long March with some skepticism Her take on it is not so critical at least to judge it at face value Sometimes I wonder if she might not have been applying the sarcasm tag But that's a mystery for another time The book did draw me in but only because the tale itself is so compelling I really didn't care for Ms Fritz's style Instead of simply reporting the events in third person or telling the tale through the eyes of a fictional character she tried to report the tale peppered with recollections of the participants she was able to interview The problem was sometimes she didn't have any recollections to use so she resorted to lines like Perhaps the survivors of the First Front Army wondered about their comrades in the Fourth But if you can forgive such transgressions China's Long March does make a suitable introduction to a memorable event in human history

    PositiveIt's amazing that hearing a story retold in a personal way can make a reader find sympathy and understanding for people and perspectives that were previously strongly shut out by his own mental firewall I had such an experience with this book having previously read about the civil war mainly from the Nationalists' point of viewIt gives a good understanding for some of the factors that led the tiny communists to victory over the much bigger and internationally supported nationalists This is something that many other books I've read fail to doIt does get exiting sometimes and the audiobook is well narratedNegative While I wouldn't call anything in this book false it's certainly not balanced If you've read a book about Chiang Kai shek the nationalists etc then this book can be a great complement it certainly was for me On its own however it might give you a twisted understanding of Mao and the communists This book is so full of phrases of emotions and awe that I'm often at a loss as to the facts Where are they now? Who was this so and so person again?Read this book to broaden your understanding not as an objective stand alone historical account

  3. Carolyn Tye Carolyn Tye says:

    This was a good source for the hardships of the Long March It helped me understand how the Communists were able to defeat the Nationalists It was a dry book I had to force myself to finish it

  4. Dawn Roberts Dawn Roberts says:

    My knowledge of Chinese history and geography are spotty at best This filled in a few gaps I had never heard of the long march of the communist First Front Army through China in 1934 and 1935 This short book gave me a new perspective on Mao as a young revolutionary I need to bump Jean Fritz's autobiography Homesick to the top of my to read list Up til now I think all the Jean Fritz books I've read were about American history but she grew up in China and obviously loves the people and the land

  5. Lisa Lisa says:

    In the years 1934 35 during the civil war between the Communist Red Army and Chiang Kai Shek's Nationalist army Communist Mao Zedung led his First Front Army on a miserable but triumphant 6000 mile long march across China through harsh terrain to their headuarters in Bao'an This is an account of that march

  6. Noel Adams Noel Adams says:

    If there was ever a piece of propaganda written for children this was it If your kids read this read it first and know your history Fritz makes Zedong the man who murdered millions of his own practically heroic I expected from this normally very good author

  7. Kaitlynn Wornson Kaitlynn Wornson says:

    everything about china seemed to be viewed through rose colored lenses

  8. Jason Jason says:

    Could Mao possibly be worse than Stalin?

  9. Tammy Tammy says:

    It was a tad dry in places and it seemed like the author took a lot of time to say not a whole lot

  10. Megan Megan says:

    This book gave me the odd feeling of being pulled in against my will—though I wasn't especially inclined to read about the Chinese Communist army I cared about them through the story
