Chinese Communist Army Begins the Long March (1934)

The Long March was a crucial event in the rise of the Chinese Communist state. Facing annihilation from Chiang Kai-shek's Kuomintang (KMT) Army, the Communists, led by Mao Zedong, retreated some 6,000 miles (9,656 km) in 370 days.

The Eight Points of Attention were:
Speak politely.
Pay fairly for what you buy.
Return everything you borrow.
Pay for anything you damage.
Do not hit or swear at people.
Do not damage crops.
Do not take liberties with women.
Do not ill-treat captives.

The most annoying thing about these articles is that the teasers always end with a question, but the answer is always buried inconspicuously in a wall of text. Shame on you

they have a song of three rules and eight attentions, not just for soldiers. many pupils sang it after 1949, but quite a while ago: now they sing mostly about love, being misunderstood, and no money and no honey.
