The Whampoa Military Academy was founded by Sun Yat-sen in 1924 with the help of the USSR and the Communist Party of China (CPC). As the first political and military institution to train revolutionaries in modern China, it was the result of the first round of cooperation between the CPC and the Kuomintang. The academy has a significant place in modern Chinese military history by spawning a large number of military and political talents for both parties. Its faculty and alumni made memorable achievements in the Eastern Expedition, the Northern Expedition and the Anti-Japanese War. They wrote an immortal epic in the Chinese history for national independence, unity and prosperity and forged Whampoa’s spirit of patriotism and revolution at all costs.

China National Philatelic Corporation will issue a FDC and a commemorative cancellation respectively.
