  • Popular Support: Cultivate close ties with the local population to gain their support, intelligence, and supplies.

Revolutionary Strategy

Beyond guerrilla warfare, Mao's writings also expounded on his broader revolutionary strategy. He saw the revolution as a protracted struggle that required a combination of military, political, and social mobilization. Key elements of his revolutionary strategy included:

  • Cultural Revolution: Transform society and eliminate reactionary influences to create a new socialist consciousness.

"Selected Military Writings of Mao Tse-Tung" had a profound impact on the Chinese revolution and beyond. Mao's principles of guerrilla warfare became a model for revolutionary movements worldwide, including the Vietnamese resistance against the French and the Cuban Revolution led by Fidel Castro. His revolutionary strategy provided a blueprint for the establishment of the People's Republic of China, which he led until his death in 1976.

His principles of guerrilla warfare remain relevant in asymmetric conflicts and counterinsurgency operations. Additionally, his revolutionary strategy provides insights into the dynamics of social and political transformation, as well as the role of ideology in shaping mass movements.
