The Long March: The Untold Story
A rag-tag army fleeing the advance of the nationalists, passing through inhospitable lands, losing scores of men (and women) emerges in northern China to regroup and prevail: the stuff of legends. Salisbury's account retraces the communist's journey through China: perhaps the most accurate account when it comes to the actual route of the Long March available in the west.
