Decisive Victory 大决战 Episode 14 Recap
The entire force of Shenyang was not completely in the hands of Wei Lihuang, and Jiang Jieshi realized that Fan Hanjie was talking about Liao Yaoxiang outside Shenyang. After that, Chiang Kai-shek ordered Liao Yaoxiang as the commander of the Westward Corps and issued a letter of appointment to him. “It is easy to break the mountain, but it is difficult to break the heart. If we are determined to die to kill the bandits, the soldiers must be loyal with the courage not to survive.” When Fan Hanjie said these words, Jiang Jieshi immediately understood that Fan Hanjie must I read the “Handbook of Suppression of Bandits” carefully. Soon, Chiang Kai-shek left the northeast, and Wei Lihuang hurried over in a car, but only saw the afterimage of the plane.
The Hou Jingru Corps and the Liao Yaoxiang Corps attracted the attention of Mao Zedong and others. Among them, the Hou Jingru Corps was pieced together by Fu Zuoyi, which is not to be feared. Like Wei Lihuang, Fu Zuoyi regarded the soldiers in their hands as the foundation of his life, and would never easily throw out all his wealth to help Chiang Kai-shek. Chiang Kai-shek went to Peiping to meet with Fu Zuoyi. He painstakingly persuaded Fu Zuoyi to send troops to assist Jinzhou, because the Battle of Jinshen was the ultimate confrontation between the Kuomintang and the Communist Party in the northeast. Fu Zuoyi asked him how likely he was to win. In fact, Chiang Kai-shek was not sure, but he knew that this battle was very crucial.
Fu Zuoyi finally stated that if the East and West Reinforcement Corps can go all out, he is willing to send troops to the Jinshen Battle. The Northeast Field Army headquarters stopped at Zhangwu, and Lin Biao told Liu Yalou that the situation had changed a lot. During Chiang Kai-shek’s northeast trip, he set the following strategy. Fan Hanjie contained the assistance of the Northeast Field Army in Jinzhou. Hou Jingru’s Eastward Corps attacked eastward from Huludao, and Liao Yaoxiang’s Westward Corps attacked westward from Shenyang. In addition, the air force and the navy cooperated. , In an attempt to annihilate the main force of the Eastern Wild in World War I and open up the situation in the Northeast. Mao Zedong received the information and immediately called Zhou Enlai and others to a meeting.
They think that since the reinforcements are going to Jinzhou sooner or later, they will take Jinzhou first, and then deal with the reinforcements. Mao Zedong gave Zhu Rui and Han Xianchu an order to advance the time of attacking Yixian and to capture Yixian within one day. This battle was the key to the battle of Jinzhou. Outside the southwest city of Yixian County, Dongye soldiers built trenches overnight to prepare for the advance attack on Yixian County. The enemy was suppressed with artillery fire, and was suppressed by the People’s Liberation Army artillery. The soldiers of the East Field continued to dig trenches. Han Xianchu received an order from his superiors, telling Zhu Rui to advance the time of attacking Yixian, even if the preparations were not yet sufficient.
At dawn the next day, the defenders of Yixian found that the communist army had dug trenches not far below the city, and instantly felt precarious. When the attack time was up, Zhu Rui ordered artillery fire to launch a fierce attack on Yixian County. The defenders were caught off guard and called Fan Hanjie for help, but Fan Hanjie let them hold on. When Wei Lihuang learned that Fan Hanjie did not plan to send soldiers from Jinzhou to rescue Yixian, he immediately understood that the defenders of Yixian had become an abandoned son. Wei Lihuang was furious and hung up the phone. If he led the Shenyang garrison with him, he might become the next abandoned Yixian garrison.
The artillery made several large holes in the city wall of Yixian County. Zhu Rui told Han Xianchu that he could launch an offensive at this time, and Han Xianchu ordered a general attack on Yixian County. Due to the rush of time, the dark fort was not completely destroyed, so they sacrificed a lot of comrades. The artillery followed by blowing up the dark fort, helping Han Xianchu’s troops finally capture Yixian, and it took less than 6 hours to end the battle. .
The Central Military Commission highly praised the Battle of Yixian County and planned to let Han Xianchu write down his experience so that he could use it when fighting Jinzhou, but as the news that Lin Biao’s train stopped at Zhangwu, everyone’s expressions became serious.
At this time, Lin Biao was worried that Jiang Jun’s east-west reinforcements would wipe out all his eastern army. He asked the combat department to issue a report on the feasibility of returning to Changchun. Although he and Liu Yalou and Luo Ronghuan said this was just a plan, Both of them could see Lin Biao’s hesitation about the battle of Jinshen, Chiang Kai-shek and Fan Hanjie called, and Fan Hanjie was confident about keeping Jinzhou well.
