Pyongyang, April 13 (KCNA) — President Kim
Il Sung was awarded the title of generalissimo on April 13, Juche 81 (1992). The
title is associated with the immortal exploits performed by the President who
wrought military miracles in the 20th century.
embarked on the road of revolution in his early years, founded the first
revolutionary armed forces in Korea with the two pistols handed down by his
father as wherewithal and declared a war against the one million-strong troops
of the Japanese imperialists.
He fought the anti-Japanese
war in the many-folded difficult conditions beyond imagination without any
stable rear and modern military hardware. He, however, defeated the Japanese
imperialists with protean and superb war tactics such as the “Art of Shrinking
the Earth” and the “march tactic one thousand miles at a run” to bring the joy
of liberation to the Korean people.
The U.S. imperialists
started the three year-long Korean war to overthrow the young Democratic
People’s Republic of Korea in its cradle by mobilizing troops of its 15
satellite countries. He also defeated the enemies which were superior in
numerical strength and military technique with his extraordinary military
strategy and unique war tactics unheard-of in the world history of wars and won
the great victory in the Fatherland Liberation War.
President had strengthened the Korean People’s Army as an invincible
revolutionary army to beat back any formidable enemy at one stroke and
consistently increased the defence capacity of the country to convert the whole
country into an impregnable fortress. He thus frustrated the persistent new war
provocation moves of the U.S. imperialists and reliably defended the security of
the country and the people. It was a long-cherished desire of the Korean people
to award the title of generalissimo to the President who led the two
revolutionary wars to victory in one generation to promote the prestige and
glory of the DPRK and laid a solid foundation to firmly guarantee the
revolutionary cause of Juche with arms.
