Tradition of Revolutionary Comradeship Created by Kim Il Sung
Pyongyang, August 13 (KCNA) -- The anti-Japanese armed struggle was a bloody revolutionary war conducted by the Korean people under the worst situation.

The key to the victory won by the Korean people in the war lay neither in the numerical strength of the army nor in the superiority of military equipment. The victory was entirely attributable to President Kim Il Sung's revolutionary comradeship and the iron-strong unity and cohesion of the Korean People's Revolutionary Army (KPRA).

It was in winter of Juche 27 (1938) that the KPRA main unit led by Kim Il Sung was making the Arduous March, fighting against the enemies.

The unit came to run out of food due to the enemies' long pursuit of it.

When taking a break, his orderlies offered him a cup of parched-rice flour they had kept for emergency use. But he distributed the flour to the orderlies, leaving nothing for him.

In the period of the anti-Japanese armed struggle, he made a bold decision to burn the bundles of "Minsaengdan (spy organization formed by the Japanese imperialists)" files to save a lot of KPRA members who were alleged to be accomplices of "Minsaengdan ".

One day, Kim Il Sung turned back his way over 40 kilometers of snowdrifts to find a fallen soldier and personally dug up a grave for him.

When calling at a secret camp, he did not hesitate to inquire after isolated cases of infectious disease.

Now, the tradition of revolutionary comradeship has been creditably carried forward by Marshal Kim Jong Un.

It is the firm will of the army and people of the DPRK to accomplish the cause of Songun by dint of comradeship under the leadership of Kim Jong Un.
