Decisive Victory 大决战 Episode 30 Recap
On the periphery of Nianzhuang, the platoon leader Wang Yuanzhang crawled forward, trying to bring back the body of the platoon leader. Unexpectedly, the opponent shot and wounded Wang Yuanzhang. The soldier Xiao Zheng went up for him and was killed. Later, the soldiers of Jiang Jun could hear what Wang Yuanzhang said in their hometown. They knew that he and he were from his hometown. They felt in his heart and agreed to let them bring back the bodies of their comrades. They promised not to shoot. When the platoon leader’s body was brought back, Wang Yuanzhang persuaded them to surrender as soon as possible and stop working for Chiang Kai-shek. The other party didn’t want to do so, but he was a sturdy soldier who was not willing to surrender with blood and tears.
Su Yu went to the war zone hospital to visit the wounded. Some wounded did not understand why Huang Baitao was so hard to fight. In order to inspire morale, Su Yu encouraged them with the victory of the previous Lunan Campaign. Su Yu finally said that he not only guaranteed the victory of Xuzhou, but also won the entire Huaihai Campaign. Returning to the headquarters, Su Yu began to review himself. He underestimated the enemy when he attacked Nianzhuang. He and Zhang Zhen said that they had to change their minds and change their tactics. After all, Huang Baitao was their old opponent and was familiar with Su Yu’s tactics. The good news came from the public opinion war. Zhang Shen’s mansion acted in the opposite direction, which aroused the resentment of the League. The League will soon meet to expel him.
When Chiang Kai-shek saw the article in the newspaper, he was also frustrated, and instead accused Chen Xun’en of not writing an article to refute him. Chen Xun’en was helpless, and the current situation has changed. Chiang Kai-shek didn’t say anything, and said bluntly that he was old and should rest. Chen Xun’en also thought that Chiang Kai-shek should also rest. When Chiang Kai-shek heard that he wanted to go down the field by himself, he was very angry, and the relationship between the two fell to a freezing point. Chen Xunen returned home and asked his son-in-law Yuan Yongxi and Lian’er if they were Communists, but Yuan Yongxi denied it with a smile. Chen Xun’en told him to take good care of Lian’er, as if to explain the funeral.
Sure enough, Song Meiling received news of Chen Xunen’s suicide the next day. Chen Xun’en left a suicide note. Chiang Kai-shek will not publish this suicide note for the time being. Although he did not hide it for a while, he insisted on doing so. Later, the Kuomintang declared in the newspaper that Chen Xunen died of illness, but Zhou Enlai told Mao Zedong that they confirmed that Chen Xunen committed suicide. Mao Zedong thought that Chen Xun’en was in a dilemma, and it was reasonable to want to remonstrate with death, but he must have never thought that Chiang Kai-shek would not listen to him. At this time, Chiang Kai-shek asked Soong Meiling to contact US President Truman and ask him to issue a statement acknowledging that the Kuomintang government is China’s ruling party.
Mao Zedong wrote an article in the newspaper, thinking that the war of liberation was about to end within a year, and Chiang Kai-shek heard that Mao Zedong was rampant. There are also some voices in the outside world that Mao Zedong is overconfident, after all, the outcome of the Huaihai Battle is still unclear. Mao Zedong didn’t care, and the direction of the big situation was clear. Chairman Mao went to see the people and was very close to them. The people in Xibaipo called him Chairman Mao. Stuart thought that Chiang Kai-shek must have peace talks with the Communist Party, and even began to choose someone who could replace Chiang Kai-shek. Li Zongren selected several candidates, but Stuart was not satisfied.
Later, Situ Leideng showed Li Zongren a report. He said that after Chiang Kai-shek abdicated, Li Zongren was not allowed to become the president of the Kuomintang. Upon hearing this, Li Zongren smiled.
