Caption from photographic print, Forman 1748: This is the Eighth Sub-Region in the Shansi[Shanxi]-Suiyuan Anti-Japanese Base. The area is about a 100 miles in diameter and ringed with Japanese strong points one almost within gun range of the other. The Communist armies and the people within defy the Japanese and have launched an offensive -- from within -- against the Japanese. The lighter area is the part already liberated. The Japanese strongpoints are being attacked and reduced by the Communist forces one by one. The Communist Eighth Route Army troopers strike at will and then are quickly swallowed up by the people within the area. The Japanese dare not follow them inside this area because they know they will suffer serious casualties from the thousands of land-mines planted along every trail and footpath and will be sniped at by the armed people, and whenever the opportunity presents itself they will be attacked by the Eighth Router regulars who rise up like wraiths, strike and disappear again. The slogans at the left read: Oppose the enemy! Fight to Win the Final Victory! Continue to do your Best to Resist the [Enemy]! (On the right it reads merely that this is the map for the Eighth Sub-Region of the Shansi [Shanxi]-Suiyuan Anti-Japanese Base).
