Birth: Dec. 1, 1886
Death: Sep. 13, 1976

Chinese Military Leader. He graduated in 1911 from the Yunnan military academy and served in various positions with armies loyal to Sun-Yat-sen. Stationed in Szechwan province, Chu took up the life of a warlord from 1916 to 1920. In 1922, he went to Europe, where he met Zhou-Enlai and joined the Chinese Communist party. Chu studied political science at the University of Gottingen, but was expelled in 1925 from Germany for radical activities. He returned to China by way of the Soviet Union, and in 1927, when Chiang Kai-shek purged the communists from the Kuomintang, Chu led an uprising in Nanchang and fled with troops to South Kiangsi province. Chu joined forces there with Mao Tse-tung. When the Communist position became untenable, he led his section of the Red Army on the Long March to the northwest. In the Second Sino-Japanese War, Chu was commander in chief of all communist forces, a position he retained after the establishment of the People's Republic of China in 1949 in Beijing. In 1954, he left his military position to serve as deputy chairman of the People's Republic of China, a post he held until 1959. From 1959 to 1976, Chu held the post of chairman of the National People's Congress, which is Communist China's major legislative body. (bio by: Mr. Badger Hawkeye)
