Chinese Army

Two modern armies have been known in English as the Chinese Army:

  • People's Liberation Army of the People's Republic of China
  • Republic of China Army (on Taiwan), which succeeded the National Revolutionary Army in 1947

Famous quotes containing the word army:

    What is called common sense is excellent in its department, and as invaluable as the virtue of conformity in the army and navy,—for there must be subordination,—but uncommon sense, that sense which is common only to the wisest, is as much more excellent as it is more rare.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
