Big waves wash the sand 大浪淘沙 Episode 18 Recap

The National Government has decided to expel Chiang Kai-shek from the party, which means that he has failed politically, but everyone thinks that this is not enough. After all, the military power is in Chiang Kai-shek’s hands. Chen Duxiu comforts everyone that things must be done step by step and cooperate with the Kuomintang. Others Stop talking about it. Chen Duxiu received an urgent call from Beijing, and Li Dazhao did not want everyone to take the risk of rejecting the prison robbery plan.

Zhang Zuolin hanged Li Dazhao and other 20 people. On the day he was tortured, Li Dazhao remained unchanged and awe-inspiring. He will always be a model for all revolutionaries. The Fifth National Congress of the Communist Party of China was held in Wuhan. Chen Duxiu conducted a review of Rightist thinking, but did not say anything about others.

The Hunan peasant army suffered heavy casualties. Mao Zedong came to Chen Duxiu. Now they are bloody. They cannot be slaughtered. However, Chen Duxiu thinks that they can only endure the humiliation and bear heavy burdens in order to unite, and they can no longer turn their faces with Wang Jingwei. Mao Zedong was emotional, if countless Maji incidents would still happen if he did not take action, they should fight against the reactionary warlords and form their own armed forces.

Chen Duxiu thinks that the peasants and workers who have not been trained and have no weapons how to contend with the army, and curse naively. Mao Zedong said that this is the difference between them. Only by uniting those forces can we build our own armed forces. The problem now is to make up our minds to take the first step.

Zhou Fohai came to see Dai Jitao. This time he was arrested by Dai Jitao and rescued him. Zhou Fohai expressed his sincere thanks. After Chiang Kai-shek established a government in Nanjing, Wuhan’s anti-Nanjing sentiment has become increasingly high. Zhou Fohai said that he could not listen to it, but Dai Jitao knew that he would leave Wuhan because he was afraid.

Dai Jitao believed that Wang Jingwei would be their fellow traveler sooner or later, and he reminded Zhou Fohai to pick up some public opinion against the Communist Party. Zhou Fohai wanted to see Chiang Kai-shek, but Dai Jitao asked him to wait for the news. Soon after, Zhou Fohai gradually became Chiang Kai-shek’s confidant, and went further and further on the road of anti-Communist and anti-people.

Bao Luoting said that the Communist International proposed to issue a manifesto exposing the counter-revolutionary actions of Chiang Kai-shek and Wang Jingwei, and at the same time stated that the Communist Party would still cooperate with the Kuomintang leftists and continue to rebel against the warlords without compromise. Chen Duxiu’s attitude is very negative.

The Communist International hopes that Chen Duxiu and other major comrades will go to Moscow and no longer hold leadership positions. At the same time, it will establish a standing committee with five people, including Zhang Guotao and Zhou Enlai. Zhang Guotao did not want to say that Chen Yannian had just been brutally murdered, and it might not be appropriate to go to Chen Duxiu at this time. In desperation, Zhou Enlai voluntarily agreed to go to Chen Duxiu to inform the matter.

Chen Duxiu has been extremely negative recently, recalling the acquaintance with Li Dazhao, depressed drinking. In recent years, Chen Duxiu and Li Dazhao had a rare meeting in the south and the north. He often thought of the days when he had a long conversation, but unfortunately he could never go back. People said that there were two stars in the south, Chen and Li, but Chen Duxiu said that they were all wrong. He was far from Li Dazhao. Chen Duxiu refused to see someone knocked on the door. Chen Duxiu’s life was very unsatisfactory.

After Li Dazhao left, Chen Yannian also left. The cooperation between the KMT and the Communist Party has existed in name only, and Chen Duxiu really does not know how to go down the road to this day. Zhou Enlai knew that Chen Duxiu was depressed, so he couldn’t bother. He comforted Chen Qiaonian that there was no need to take care of himself. Chen Duxiu still needed his care. There were three wine glasses on the table. Chen Duxiu poured the wine and said that he and Chen Yannian and his son had never had a drink together. Chen Qiaonian remembered that when he was a child, Chen Duxiu went to Japan because he was against Yuan.

The enemy wanted to arrest the brothers. The two of them fled to the countryside to depend on each other. Chen Qiaonian deeply felt the four words of eldest brother as father. Zhou Enlai said that together they created a bright future that Chen Yannian could not wait for during his lifetime. Chen Qiaonian said that he would convey the instructions of the Communist International, but Chen Duxiu should not agree to go to Moscow.

Chen Duxiu refused to go to Moscow and has since left the party leadership. The first cooperation between the Kuomintang and the Communist Party officially broke down, and the great revolution that lasted for more than a year was a complete failure. The party’s activities quickly moved from public to underground. Chen Tanqiu and Xu Quanzhi were going to Nanchang to cooperate with the armed uprising. Before they set off, Xu Quan looked sad.

Their daughter was less than ten months old. Chen Tanqiu did not want her daughter to follow along, so they decided to leave her with her grandmother. Xu Quanzhi didn’t have much time to spend with her daughter. She wanted to make a pair of shoes and didn’t do it for so many days. She felt that she was incompetent, but she also understood that all they did was for the future of the next generation. Two days later, Chen Tanqiu and Xu Quanzhi went to Jiangxi to work with the armed uprising.
