Chu Teh (Chinese, 朱德) (1 December 1886 - 6 July 1976) was a Chinese soldier, revolutionary, general, warlord, politician, and founder of the Chinese Red Army, forerunner of today's People's Liberation Army.

Chu Teh in WorldwarEdit

Chu Teh commanded the People's Liberation Army during the resistance to the Race's occupation of China. He held the army together through strength of will and was the Chinese Communist Party's undisputed military expert. Despite his importance, his appearance and behavior were quite undistinguished: He looked like an aging peasant, and, while he attended meetings of the CCP's Central Committee, usually did not contribute substantively to political decisions, at least not during official deliberations.[1] For instance, at the Central Committee's 1963 meeting in Fengchen, he offered only hollow expressions of agreement with Mao Tse-Tung.
