 Stefan Landsberger's Chinese Propaganda Poster Pages--Lin Biao
Lin Biao (1907-1971) was considered one of the strategic men of genius of the Red Army and its successor, the People's Liberation Army.
Lin's strategic thinking, encapsulated in the so-called 'Four Firsts' program that put men over weapons; political over other work; ideological over routine work; and 'practical thought' over book-learning, very much coincided with Mao's newly discovered penchant for self-sacrifice and self-sufficiency, qualities that were called for after the disastrous Great Leap Forward campaign.
Lin's 'betrayal' was severely criticized in the Gang-of-Four-inspired "Campaign to Criticize Lin Biao and Confucius", which started in 1974.
