Taking Tiger Mountain by Strategy is adapted from parts of the 1957 hit novel, Tracks in the Snowy Forest, by Qu Bo. The book was inspired by a real-life story of an incident in 1946 during the Communist campaign to suppress bandits in Northeast China during the Chinese Civil War.

The story follows a PLA soldier named Yang Zirong who impersonates a bandit to infiltrate into a local gang of bandits, eventually helping the main Communist force wipe out the bandits.
