Korea was a colony of the Japanese imperialists for over 40 years in the first half of the 20th century.

In those days of national sufferings, the great leader Kim Il Sung set out on the road of revolution in his early years and organized and waged an armed struggle against the Japanese imperialists centring on Mt. Paektu.

Those fighters who took part in the anti-Japanese revolutionary struggle under the leadership of Kim Il Sung are the first generation of the Korean revolution.

The 20-year-long anti-Japanese revolutionary struggle was an unprecedentedly arduous and rigorous struggle that needed a fight against the formidable enemy without any state rear or support of a regular army.

The intense cold, severe difficulty of obtaining food and fight against the terrible diseases were as good as the fight against the enemy. Indeed, harsh trials and hardships beyond the human imagination were written in the history of the anti-Japanese revolutionary struggle.

The first generation of the Korean revolution, however, overcame all the difficulties, picturing to themselves the future when they would win a victory in firm unity around Kim Il Sung.

The historic cause of national liberation was accomplished on August 15, Juche 34(1945).

Preserved at the revolutionary battle sites in the area of Mt. Paektu are the traces left by the first generation of the Korean revolution.

The respected Comrade Kim Jong Un looked round the revolutionary battle sites in the area of Mt. Paektu several times. He said everybody should visit the revolutionary battle sites in the area of Mt. Paektu to know how the history of victory of the Korean revolution was written.

And he stressed the need to train the new generations, the main force of the Korean revolution, with the same ideological and mental traits and fighting spirit as the anti-Japanese revolutionary forerunners.

With his firm determination and will, all the Korean people visit Mt. Paektu.

Making a forced march and eating and sleeping in the open as the anti-Japanese revolutionary fighters did, they have a deep understanding of the arduous Korean revolution, the indomitable revolutionary spirit of the anti-Japanese fighters and their warm love for the country, ardent patriotism and revolutionary optimism.
