Across the Yalu River 跨过鸭绿江 Episode 19 Recap
Yang Gensi took off the famous brand of the sacrificed soldier, and also took his own brand to let Zhao Rengui and Xiaodoubao return to the military headquarters with heavy machine gun weapons and famous brand. At least let the families of these sacrificed soldiers get their news. Zhao Rengui gritted his teeth and pulled the Xiaodoubao away.
Yang Gensi lay alone in the trenches and glanced at his sacrificed comrades for the last time. He picked up the explosive bag and rushed towards the American army. Ma Jinhu came to the 1071 position and cried out Yang Gensi’s name. He brought the picture of the National Heroes Commendation Conference framed in a frame, but Yang Gensi, who was only 28 years old, had stayed in this land forever on.
Chairman Mao found that the US First Division was going to escape through the Watergate Bridge. He ordered the Ninth Corps to blow up the bridge at all costs and demanded to advance to Pyongyang. He demanded that the US military must pay the price of blood for every step. The army was in rest and reorganization, the enemy army had been disintegrated, and with a sledgehammer, President Peng decided to send three divisions of the 39th Army to capture Pyongyang, and the 116 division would take the lead.
Mao Zedong also specifically instructed that the entrance ceremony to recover Pyongyang should allow the Korean People’s Army to advance to the city. On December 6, 1950, the 116th Division and the Korean People’s First Army finally entered North Korea.
Pyongyang, the temporary capital that had fallen into the hands of the enemy for 46 days, finally returned to the hands of the Korean people. Mao Zedong finally smiled happily when he heard the news. He personally picked up a pen to write a news report. Zhou Enlai recalled the “Xiangjiang Daily” of that year, and Mao Zedong’s literary talent in writing about dragons and snakes really criticized Fang Qiu. Mao Zedong smiled and said that he was too happy to tell the whole country and the world the first time.
Washington received the battle report. The U.S. military can only hold on to the Busan generation. Acheson said that China has now occupied Pyongyang and the U.S. military cannot increase its military support in time. It should re-examine whether this war will become a full-scale war between them and China and even the Soviet Union. .
MacArthur proposed that if China requires a truce, the United Nations should pass, but the two sides must stop another offensive within the 38th parallel, otherwise they can only increase their troops to continue the offensive, or they can directly bomb the Chinese mainland or withdraw from the Korean Peninsula.
Truman asked about the proposal of Secretary of Defense Marshall, he proposed to the United Nations first to propose a ceasefire agreement with the 38th parallel as the boundary, in order to win more priority. Truman accepted the suggestions of the two men, but in order to create momentum, he ordered the commanders around the world to expand the army for the pigs rather than the total war.
Wu Xiuquan sent a telegram, and Mao Zedong and Zhou Enlai had understood that the West was testing China’s intentions, and that the global war alert strength issued by the US was another threat to China.
Britain and the United States exerted pressure on the United Nations, and India and other 13 Asian countries drafted and formed a peace plan for North Korea, calling on the Korean People’s Army and Chinese troops not to go south of the 38th Parallel, which is in line with the intention of the United States. The plan proposed that China should withdraw its troops and stop gathering its troops on the border. Mao Zedong snorted. This is just a running dog for the United States.
Zhou Enlai banged on the table and the New China itself was threatened. These 13 countries had never controlled before, and even the Chinese army retreated. These countries have not considered the security of the time. Marshall said to his face that he would cease the war, but secretly transported weapons and equipment for Chiang Kai-shek. Such a loss must not be eaten again.
Mao Zedong proposed that if the Western countries want peace talks, then the Chinese side put forward five conditions: 1. All foreign troops withdraw from North Korea, 2. Withdraw American troops from Taiwan, 3. The North Korean issue is left to the North Korean people to solve by themselves, and foreign countries must not interfere. Representatives of the Republic replaced Chiang Kai-shek’s representatives to participate in the United Nations.
The five summons gathered the four major powers of the Soviet Union, Britain and the United States to prepare contracts, and they were not allowed to sign unilaterally. These five practical and factual points are in the eyes of Truman, but Mao Zedong and Zhou Enlai discussed that they should continue to communicate with the Soviet Union and contact the Indian ambassador for discussion.
The U.S. Army continued to build bridges on the Watergate Bridge, but they were all bombed by the volunteers. They had no choice but to use two steel bars to build a straight bridge for the tanks to pass. The western route was basically completed, but the water gate bridge on Changjin Lake on the east route became a hidden danger again. Volunteers sent a death squad to blow up the piers of the water gate bridge, but the US army did not give up on the formation of eight huge steel bridges and dropped them near the water gate bridge. ,
Two days later, a new Watergate Bridge lay between the cliffs. President Peng stared at the photos of the Zhongshuimen Bridge. He ordered the Ninth Corps to become their permanent nightmare even if the US First Division wanted to escape from the Watergate Bridge.
However, the Ninth Corps suffered heavy casualties, and President Peng expressed to Mao Zedong that he was very guilty for failing to complete the task of annihilating the enemy. However, Mao Zedong said that the battle was properly commanded, and the soldiers fought to the last moment under the severe cold. This was a tragic victory for our army and an unprecedented defeat for the US army.
When Oliver led the US army to attack the area south of Guturi again, the soldiers of the 172th Regiment of the 58th Division of the 20th Army had all frozen on the position. Looking at these Chinese soldiers who were frozen to the ground but still holding their weapons firmly, Oliver took out a suicide note from one of them, and the translator told him that it reads his love for the motherland and his family, and even if he freezes to death, he will die.
The determination above this position. Oliver admired the lofty beliefs and firm convictions of these soldiers. He felt that MacArthur should be grateful that the US military could not cross the Yalu River. He led the American soldiers to salute the Chinese soldiers.
The Chinese Volunteers fought bravely, which fundamentally reversed the situation and laid the foundation for victory in the Korean War. The Chinese side met with Indian representative Pannija. India hopes that the Chinese military will stop advancing and resolve the issue of North Korea, Taiwan and China’s seat in the United Nations through international organizations. Zhang Hanfu reminded that the Pannika Volunteers had liberated Pyongyang and that the UN forces were losing ground. It is not time to ask for the status quo now.
Pannica believes that the solution to the problem lies in political means, but Zhang Hanfu once again reiterated that China does not want war, but the 13 countries should also adopt a cautious attitude. He put forward China’s request for peace talks that foreign troops withdraw from North Korea and Taiwan and ask for seats in the United Nations. Pannika tried to prevent the Chinese army from crossing the 38th Parallel, but Zhang Hanfu insisted on his position and did not back down.
The talks with India ended up unhappy. Mao Zedong proposed that the Chinese people would never lie down again when they stood up, so that the whole world should see that we are capable of defending world peace, and that all countries should not fall to the side of imperialism. .
The war has been fighting and waiting for President Peng and others who are still thinking about and waiting for the chairman’s decision. President Peng wrote the six words “hungry without food, cold without clothes” and requested to directly telegraph the central government. Deng Ping made it clear that Mao Zedong might still want them to chase the poor, but President Peng didn’t want to, but with the current situation of the volunteers, what else could they do to chase them. Mao Zedong kept smoking cigarettes, and the whole room became a sea of fog.
Looking at the telegram sent by Mr. Peng, he fell into deep thought. This is the first time Peng Dehuai has complained to him since Jinggangshan. Zhou Enlai looked at the telegram. It was a hidden danger to New China that the U.S. emperor was not killed, but the lives of the soldiers were also precious. Mao Zedong ordered the postponement of the pursuit and asked the volunteers to replenish food and ammunition to fully support the Eastern Front.
MacArthur was questioned by reporters at the press conference, but his clichés that the U.S. military must win can no longer be believed. He even said that he wanted to go to war with China. Truman was very dissatisfied with MacArthur’s reckless behavior. Acheson suggested that the State Department require no one to make any diplomatic statements without permission. Truman also pointed out that the most important thing at the moment is to stabilize the situation in South Korea.
