The purge of Peng Dehuai.

Description

Peng Dehuai was one of the few high-ranking Communist Party officials to voice his misgivings about the Great Leap Forward. Mao purged him from the party and during the Cultural Revolution he endured public humiliation and torture as this photograph attests to. Peng was exonerated by the Chinese Communist party in 1978 after his death.
