The Long March, Take Two

Recent research, which has only just come to my attention, suggests that the Long March quoted in last month's issue was not quite as long as was originally claimed.

Two walkers (as against the original 100,000) retraced the route through 11 provinces, 18 mountain ranges and across 24 major rivers, and found it was only about 7,500 miles.  I really must stop putting any faith in OUP reference works.
