Mao's Generals

Mao's Generals Chen Yi and the New Fourth Army Lanzin Xiang

Mao's Generals reevaluates the military history of Mao Zedong's seizure of power in China using all original historical materials, confronting the history as recorded by the communist party-influenced historians. It disputes the total invincibility and brilliance of Mao in military affairs by restoring credit to the generals that made significant contributions to the communist victory.The focus falls mainly on a brilliant romantic poet named Chen Yi who founded the New Fourth Army with a group of brilliant young men and led peasant guerrillas to the victory that broke the Kuomintong's backbone. Despite his accomplishments, he could not deter his eventual demise at the hands of Mao. The author uses these incidents, plus the manipulation of the Anti-Japanese War to expose the actual nature of the communist revolution and policy in China under Mao.
