The Wangjiaping Revolutionary Site is located in the northwestern part of Yan'an just across the Yanhe River from the city. During World War II, after the Central Party Committee relocated to Yan'an, the military committee and military headquarters based here led the army and the people in the area throughout the eight years of the war of resistance against Japanese aggression. After the Japanese surrender, it was from this base that a full-scale offensive was led against the Kuomintang reactionaries. When the Kuomintang occupied Yan'an, some of the buildings here were destroyed. They were later repaired to look exactly as they had before the Kuomintang occupation. The best places to visit are the military committee auditorium, the combat room, and the former residences of Mao Zedong, Zhu De and Peng Dehuai.
