Historical DescriptionEdit

Under Mao Zedong and Zhou Enlai, the People's Liberation Army survived the brutal 12-month Long March in 1934-1935, now considered a foundational event for modern China. After a truce to fight against the Japanese from 1937-1946, the Communists ultimately won the civil war and took control over mainland China in 1949.

Attacking Strategies Edit

  • Long March Infantry has low health; making them vulnerable to defenses. Use Heavy Infantry as meat shields to protect the Long March Infantry.
  • Long March Infantry is cheap and can be used to set off hidden enemy traps.
  • Use Long March Infantry to protect heavy infantry from other infantry so your Heavy Infantry won't get distracted.
  • Since Long March Infantry can deal more damage to foot troops, bringing some along with Heavy Infantry and/or Heavy Cavalry will help deal with pesky defending foot troops!
  • Make sure to keep the Long March Infantry behind your 'meat shields' or away from danger.

Defensive Strategies Edit

  • Long March Infantry can be used as good Alliance Troops. One example is that they can shoot over walls to attack troops of the attackers forcing the troops to destroy the wall to kill them. Another thing is that they're good against other Heavy Infantry.
