Source 1: The Long March 1934-1935 Swiftly Taking Luding Bridge (Poster)

Subject

The Long March

Description

This is a propaganda poster commemorating the Battle of Luding bridge where twenty soldiers, under grenade fire, fought against the odds to secure the bridge allowing for the sage passage of other soldiers. The composition of this propaganda is clearly emotive, with brushstrokes used to convey elements of fire and smoke as well as the dilapidated state of the bridge. The soldiers look forward unperturbed, despite the long drop down to the river below.
