Big waves wash the sand 大浪淘沙 Episode 34 Recap
The reporter who visited Yan’an for the first time by Boschard had a three-hour conversation with Mao Zedong, and the two left a group photo. Mao Zedong and Boshard talked about the Chinese Communist Party’s resistance to Japan and the future of the Chinese Communist Party. At this time, Mao Zedong received a telegram from Zhou Enlai, saying that Zhang Guotao had finally arrived, but Zhang Guotao refused to go to the office.
Zhou Enlai could only ask Zhang Guotao to send a telegram to the central government. The telegram sent by Zhang Guotao did not explain his defection. Mao Zedong quickly sent someone to call Zhang Guotao, hoping that Zhou Enlai would tell Zhang Guotao. There were two ways in front of him. One was a temporary vacation, and the other was to expel him from the party.
Hankou. Zhang Guotao quietly prepared to call, and Zhou Enlai came. Zhou Enlai took out the central call back, hoping that he would return to Yan’an immediately, and this incident would be forgotten. Zhang Guotao said that he would never go back again, and repeatedly claimed that he had no place in Yan’an. Zhou Enlai could only let him choose between the two roads of the central government.
Zhang Guotao said that he wanted to reply again, and said that he only wanted to return to Jiangxi to be an ordinary citizen. Zhou Enlai knew that Zhang Guotao was deceiving people and said that he would give him one day to think about it. After Zhou Enlai left, Zhang Guotao called Dai Li to indicate that he wanted to join the National Government. That night, Zhang Guotao was picked up by the Kuomintang and left a note saying that he would choose the third way.
Zhou Enlai suggested that Zhang Guotao should be expelled from the party immediately. After everyone agreed, the telegram was sent to the Central Committee. Chiang Kai-shek had arranged for Zhang Guotao to go to Dai Li’s second place of military reunification. Mao Zedong said that he was not a true communist. The revolution was only an entry level for him. Three years ago, he set up the Central Committee and made many people recognize Zhang Guotao’s true face. The traitor can’t make any waves anymore.
Yang Zilie came to see Mao Zedong and Luo Fu pregnant while she was pregnant. She really didn’t expect Zhang Guotao to do such a thing, and left their wives behind. Yang Zilie hoped that Mao Zedong would let herself go to Hankou. She would definitely persuade Zhang Guotao to come back. Mao Zedong agreed. Yang Zilie wanted to take Zhang Haiwei and his sister. Mao Zedong agreed. Luo Fu felt that if Yang Zilie really wanted to persuade Zhang Guotao to take away his son and sister, Mao Zedong said it was her own choice to leave or stay.
When Wang Jiaxiang arrived in Yan’an, his injuries were basically healed. Wang Jiaxiang brought documents from the Communist International. The Eighth Route Army has grown to 200,000, which shows that Mao Zedong’s choice is correct. The Communist International suggested supporting Mao Zedong as the leader of the Central Communist Party, and Chen Shaoyu was unnecessary. Mao Zedong suggested that the Sixth Plenary Session of the Sixth Central Committee be convened.
Chen Shaoyu felt that the Sixth Plenary Session of the Sixth Central Committee would be held in Wuhan. Zhou Enlai and Dong Biwu both thought it inappropriate, but Chen Shaoyu insisted. Since Chen Shaoyu returned to China, he has been making small moves. Mao Zedong decided to let Chen Shaoyu return to Yan’an for a meeting as soon as possible, otherwise he would bear the consequences.
Wang Jiaxiang of the Fourth Plenary Session of the Sixth Central Committee conveyed the instructions of the Communist International. The Japanese army stepped up their offensive against Wuhan. Wuhan is now unstable. Mao Zedong and Zhou Enlai were worried that Chiang Kai-shek’s determination to resist Japan would be shaken.
Zhou Enlai decided to return to Wuhan as soon as he finished the report tomorrow. Mao Zedong planned to write a letter to him and hand it to Chiang Kai-shek. Li Da’s family was escorted to Guiyang. On the way, Li Xintian had a fever and vomited. Li Da and others hurriedly took her to the hospital. Unexpectedly, Li Xintian’s disease was tuberculous meningitis, and the hospital could not do much. Li Xintian left them that night, Li Da and Wang Huiwu were deeply distressed and unable to react to their sorrow.
