WWII Timeline – Fall 1934

I’m continuing my WWII Timeline series with a look at October – December 1934 in this post.

A Timeline of WWII, Fall 1934

October 1934

The 6,000-mile (10,000-km) historic trek of the Chinese communists, also known as the “Long March,” led by Mao Zedong began. The trek resulted in the relocation of the communist revolutionary base from southeastern to northwestern China. Mao Zedong emerged as the undisputed party leader.

December 1934

The Italian military began a buildup following Benito Mussolini’s order for the conquest of Abyssinia (present-day Ethiopia).

December 1, 1934

An associate of Soviet Premier Joseph Stalin, Serge Kirov, was assassinated. Stalin used Kirov’s murder as the reason to remove 2,000 party officials from Leningrad.
