On offer is an original, historically significant 1966 - 1969 manuscript diary handwritten by a military officer at the beginning through the 'end' of the Cultural Revolution. This diary records this man's work, thoughts and personal part and actions in his military service and the camps he attended throughout 1966 to 1969. [Historians and researchers of the era will find a number of sections of the book crossed out in the later years as one Party member, Lin Biao, fell into disfavour and the words or speeches that had been quoted in those pages were excised to avoid political persecution.] Over 200 pages in the 12cm x 17cm book the author, who we believe is recorded within the pages, details his part in the military and as part of the Communist movement and Mao Zedong's Cultural Revolution. As one online source succinctly sums up the times: "People's Republic of China from 1966 through 1976. Set into motion by Mao Zedong, then Chairman of the Communist Party of China, its stated goal was to enforce socialism in the country by removing capitalist, traditional and cultural elements from Chinese society, and impose Maoist orthodoxy within the Party. The most important, yet naturally unstated, reason for the revolution was the return of Mao Zedong to a position of political power, after he lost most of his political influence after his failed Great leap forward."
