Source 7 : Communist Party Guerrilla Warfare Agnes Smedley (1930s) ‘Night welcome meeting. New 4th Storm Guerrilla Detachment in Central China, North Hankou'

Subject

Communist Party Guerrilla Warfare

Description

This is an idealised depiction of Communist Party forces from a western sympathiser named Agnes Smedley. Smedley had applied for membership of the CCP during the 1930s but was rejected due to her 'independence of mind' which may be apparent in this more intimate, staged but resolutely human portrayal of combatants, strategising over candlelight.
