I agree, that was rather hilarious. Especially the bit with Zhang Bao running off a cliff. :lol:

Super old thread, I know. But I have a relevant question. It appears a lot of this bio is rather joking. But I'm wondering, is there truth in this bio? It seems like there is a fair amount of truth but I have no knowledge of Mao. If this does contain truths, I'd like to know sources if any have been revealed

I found it a very interesting read

It's true to our hearts but not to history.
