The Red Guards

Red Guards (China), self-proclaimed militant groups of high school and university students who were extremely loyal to Chinese leader Mao Zedong during the early stages of the Cultural Revolution (1966-1976). The Red Guards carried out Mao’s directives to attack elitist elements of society. In the chaos that ensued, violence and destruction occurred throughout China, thousands died, and millions were imprisoned or exiled.
