A compilation of remarks by Chinese President Xi Jinping at a gathering to commemorate the 80th anniversary of the success of the Long March has been published by the People's Publishing House, the publisher said on Monday.
"Some day, someone will write the full epic of this exciting expedition," thus wrote Edgar Snow, on his pages of Red Star Over China, a historical account of the birth of Communist Party of China published in 1937.
As Saturday marks the 80th anniversary of the Long March victory, China is hoping to pass on the epic expedition's legacy from generation to generation.
Chinese President Xi Jinping hailed the Long March as an "epic, human miracle," and called for efforts to realize the "two centenary goals" and the Chinese dream of national rejuvenation in "a new Long March."
As China celebrates the 80th anniversary of the end of the Red Army's Long March, a number of visiting foreign soldiers learned about the history and found determination, sacrifice and faith are the merits of the Chinese Army.
