The world progressives, with deep reverence, are praising President Kim Il Sung as the most outstanding politician of the 20th century, the father of all the people and the eternal sun. Kim Il Sung (1912-94) was the dictatorial leader of North Korea from shortly after World War II until his death in 1994.
At the age of fifteen he was arrested and imprisoned for being a member of the South Manchurian Communist Youth League. After his release in 1930 he joined the Korean Revolutionary Army. By 1932 Kim IL Sung had become leader of a guerrilla group based in Korea. Over the next ten years he launched a series of attacks against the Japanese. This included successes at Changbaik (26th February, 1937), Kapsan (4th June, 1937) and Daimalugou (25th March, 1937).
