With unprecedented access to firsthand accounts, in Hundred Day War, William Hinton tells the story of the intense struggle of Red Guard factions at Qinghua University during the Cultural Revolution, which eventually led to students building their own cannons and tanks to engage in armed conflict. These events were a direct result of the line struggle that was being waged at the top levels of the CPC. They demonstrate the lengths to which the Right and ultra-Left went to manipulate the people and the enormity of the Left’s determination to resolve the factional antagonisms in order to remake one of China’s most elite universities into a people’s university, tasked with educating and training the next generation of proletarian intellectuals.
