دیوار چین طولانیترین و بزرگترین سازهٔ مهندسی تدافعی و نظامی از لحاظِ زمانِ ساخت در جهان است. این دیوار در نقشه جغرافیایی چین ۷۰۰۰ کیلومتر امتداد یافته است و در سال ۱۹۸۷ میلادی در فهرست میراث جهانی ثبت گردیده است.
The wall stretches for more than four thousand miles across northern China
It is the largest man-made structure in the world
Nearly a million people died building it
More than two thousand years ago, with his land under constant attack from nomads, the First Emperor of China came up with a simple solution: build a wall to keep out enemies. It was a wall that kept growing and growing. But its construction came at a huge cost: it is believed that more than a million Chinese died building it, earning the wall its nickname–the longest cemetery on earth. Through the story of the wall, Patricia Brennan Demuth is able to tell the story of China itself, the rise and fall of dynasties, the greatness of its culture, and its present-day status as a Communist world power.
