Summary
In October 1934, the Chinese Communist Army found itself facing annihilation, surrounded by hundreds of thousands of Nationalist soldiers. Rather than surrender, 86,000 Communists embarked on an epic flight to safety, including 30 brave women who left their homes to join the ranks of these male soldiers. In the course of a year, the women would cover more than 4,000 brutal miles on foot, traversing deadly swamps and treacherous peaks, terrifying Tibetan plateaus and vast deserts. Their journay would be one of the most horrific in history, and only 10,000 of the men would make it to the end- but remarkably, almost every woman would live to tell the tale of the Long March. This book is an amazing true story of love, friendship, liberation, and survival against all odds. -- from Back Cover
