The epic Long March of the Communist Chinese Army in 1934 involved its retreat from the Nationalists for some 8,000 miles. This saved the Communists from certain destruction and established Mao Zedung as the head of the Communist Party. Sun, a filmmaker, retraced the route of the march. Along the way, she located veterans and witnesses and also delved into historical records. What Sun found was the great heroism of many Chinese, the ruthlessness and duplicity of Mao, and the inaccuracy of much of what she had been taught about the march in China. This splendid work is ably read by Laural Merlington. Her voice is calm and serene, almost dispassionate, throughout. She affects an Asian accent, which adds to the narration.
