At a seminar held in Beijing on Oct 22, Yi Kai, secretary general of China TV Artists Committee, shared and discussed details of the show. "The documentary shows China's CPV soldiers fighting against the invaders and beating them under extremely difficult conditions like imbalanced military strength, and achieving great victory in the war," Yi says.
Chen Dao, a 92-year-old CPV veteran who fought in the war for 20 months from 1950 to 1952, felt his eyes moisten as he watched the documentary. "When he saw scenes of the CPV soldiers marching and fighting in the snowy weather wearing very thin clothes, he nodded and told us his army received an urgent order at that time to go to the DPRK, and they didn't have enough time to prepare better equipment. So the soldiers wore thin clothes, and hugged each other's feet to keep warm," says Chen Bing, daughter of Chen Dao.
