President Kim Il Sung and Liberation of Korea

 

President Kim Il Sung (1912-1994) embarked upon the road of revolution in his teens to save the country and the nation suffering under the Japanese military occupation (1905-1945). He founded the Anti-Japanese People’s Guerrilla Army (later renamed as the Korean People’s Revolutionary Army) on April 25, 1932 and waged the struggle against invaders.
He put forward the line of waging an armed struggle mainly in the form of guerrilla warfare. Under his leadership, the guerrillas, genuine patriots of Korea, sacrificed their life and youth without hesitation in the sacred struggle for the liberation of the country.
In those days of the anti-Japanese guerrilla warfare they left many stories: a phoenix-like fighter who cut his wounded leg going to decay with a saw made of a can to go on fighting, a woman fighter who shouted loud “I Can Still See Victory in the Revolution” after her eyes were extracted when caught by the enemies and the merit of O Jung Hup-led 7th Regiment fighters who beat the enemy disguising the unit as the headquarters to protect it.
Besides, the members of the KPRA obtained the munitions, weapons, food, clothes and other materials needed in their armed struggle on their own. They fought the enemies by setting up an arsenal in the forest to make the bombs called “Yongil Bomb” by themselves and by preparing the uniforms using iron wire to replace needles of sewing machines. They subdued the numerical and military superiority of the Japanese imperialists armed to the teeth with the political and ideological superiority.
The call of President Kim Il Sung to the whole nation in all walks of life who hated the Japanese imperialists and loved the country and the nation to unite and turn out to the sacred struggle for the national liberation together with the Ten-Point Programme of the Association for the Restoration of the Fatherland gathered a new momentum of upsurge in the struggle of the Korean people for the national liberation.
To cope up with the prevailing situation in 1940s and proactively greet the great event of national liberation he prepared the guerrillas with the tactics and technique of the modern and regular warfare such as landing, parachuting, skiing, and wireless communication so as to keep themselves in perfect readiness for the final offensive against the Japanese imperialists. When everything was ready, he gave order for the final offensive operation on August 9, 1945. The raging advance of the KPRA coupled with the attack of armed revolting organizations from the rear brought about at last the liberation of Korea on August 15, 1945.
