Big waves wash the sand 大浪淘沙 Episode 36 Recap
Zhang Guotao was scolded for waste by Chief Shen. Although he was very angry, Zhang Guotao could only swallow his anger. The Communist Party’s anti-Japanese forces suffered huge losses. Mao Zedong believed that to leave Yan Xishan room for maneuver and relying on the correct political policy, he would surely succeed in the Shanxi Incident and completely smash the first anti-communist climax. Wang Jingwei became a puppet government in Nanjing, and both Zhou Fohai and Chen Gongbo held important posts in the Wang puppet government, becoming traitors cursed by thousands of people.
Chen Gongbo is about to give a speech, but he is very upset. The Japanese are not allowed to use the blue sky and white sun flag, and they are playing tricks to leave room for negotiations with Chiang Kai-shek. Chen Gongbo complained that Mrs. Wang’s stuffing the seven aunts and eight aunts into the National Government was a mess.
Dong Biwu returned to Yan’an, and has not returned for three years since he went to work in the South. Chiang Kai-shek suppressed the Communist Party’s anti-Japanese forces and created frictions to distort public opinion. Dong Biwu said that the Kuomintang had made political participation in a panic, and Mao Zedong hoped that he would bring unnamed people from various parties to this side. A part of the masses questioned the party and the Eighth Route Army. Mao Zedong said that there would be a big military movement soon, allowing the masses to see that the Eighth Route Army was really fighting against Japan.
In the initial victory, the Eighth Route Army headquarters named the battle the Great War of Hundred Regiments. Chen Qihang went to Yan’an, and several people sent videos to Lin Fan. The Kuomintang forced the Eighth Route Army and the New Fourth Army to leave North China and even demanded the reduction of soldiers. Chiang Kai-shek stabbed a knife in the back.
Zhou Enlai believed that the anti-communist upsurge was on the rise. Mao Zedong agreed with his judgment. Chiang Kai-shek’s anti-communist upsurge was related to the international situation at this time. In Xi’an, after receiving Mao Zedong’s instructions, Dong Biwu and other office personnel quickly burned down the secret phone. Dong Biwu hoped to return to Chongqing. The more dangerous the place, the less he could escape.
The Southern Anhui Incident shocked China and foreign countries, and it was also the Kuomintang’s second anti-communist upsurge. The Nationalist Government wanted to disband the New Fourth Army and slander the New Fourth Army as a rebel. Zhou Enlai and Dong Biwu wanted to expose the truth of the events in Southern Anhui first. Mao Zedong decided to make a speech and rebuild the military headquarters of the New Fourth Army. The relationship between the Kuomintang and the Communist Party entered a stalemate, but the international situation changed drastically.
Chen Gongbo was downcast again. Wang Jingwei wanted to follow the Japanese and declare war with the United States and Britain, but the Japanese did not agree to the war plan, and the Japanese did not regard them as allies at all. After being released from prison, Chen Duxiu went from Nanjing to Wuhan, then to Chongqing, and settled in Jiangjin, a small city a hundred miles away. Bao Huiseng came to visit again. Chen Duxiu was very happy to see him. I heard that when Chen Duxiu first arrived in Chongqing, many people persuaded him to do things and give lectures. Chen Duxiu was very annoying. Then he moved to the mountain and the cost of the mountain was cheap. Chen Duxiu lamented that she was getting old and her heart calmed down. In retrospect, she always felt that some people owed something, but they had already left and never had a chance to make up.
Bao Huiseng said that he and Zhang Guotao often met in Chongqing, and the two no longer felt like they were at a standstill. Chen Duxiu said that Zhang Guotao had visited him. Although he had a strong working ability, he did this and think about it all the time. Now he can’t change it. But Bao Huiseng, Zhou Fohai, Chen Gongbo, and Liu Renjing were all young and passionate at the beginning. Carrying up the heavy task of transforming China, some people have become traitors, and some have become depressed. Chen Duxiu said that in their dictionary, self always comes first.
Late one night, Chen Duxiu said that her stomach hurts, and then she fainted. Chen Duxiu was bedridden, and Zhang Guotao hurriedly informed Bao Huiseng.
