Decisive Victory 大决战 Episode 39 Recap
At night, Mao Zedong convened the major secretaries to discuss how to solve the problem of Pingjin as soon as possible, as well as discuss the combat methods of the Northeast Field Army after entering the Pass. At present, whether it is Fu Zuoyi or Chiang Kai-shek, they expected that they would start fighting from the east. Mao Zedong said, then they Just do the opposite: Let Yang Chengge fight Zhangjiakou first, and Yang Dezhi Corps will fight for a new security guard to divert Fu Zuoyi’s attention.
Dongye took the opportunity to quickly divide Beiping, Tianjin and Tanggu and then surround Pingjin as a peace talk with Fu Zuoyi. Premise. Chiang Kai-shek personally went to the airport to send Song Meiling to the United States. Soong Meiling was calm and calm on the surface, but she also knew that her trip would not be easy.
Regarding Song Meiling’s visit to the United States, Mao Zedong and others believed that the United States’ assistance to China was based on the interests of the two countries, rather than personal abilities, and Song Meiling’s trip would definitely not be satisfactory. Chiang Kai-shek asked Chiang Ching-kuo to secretly transport gold to Taiwan for emergencies. Chiang Ching-kuo asked him if the current situation was irreversible.
Chiang Kai-shek said that they needed to prepare for the worst. At the military meeting, Guo Rugui analyzed the situation and proposed to abandon Xuzhou and retreat to the Huaihe River in the southeast. Du Yuming had different opinions, but he did not speak openly, but proposed to talk to Chiang Kai-shek alone. He believes that Guo Rugui’s deployment is to force them to death, and he has a third retreat route.
This third route is to the southwest, but all of Du Yuming’s arrangements have already been analyzed by Su Yu. Du Yuming suggested that Xuzhou’s retreat plan should be listed as the top military secret. Chiang Kai-shek guessed that Du Yuming believed that there were spies in the KMT high-level. Du Yuming also said that the person he suspected was Guo Rugui, because Guo Rugui, as a senior general of the Kuomintang, was really poor. It’s suspicious.
Chiang Kai-shek checked him a few years ago, but nothing was found. Although Du Yuming’s guess could not be wrong, Chiang Kai-shek reminded him that they must unite sincerely at critical moments. After that, Chiang Kai-shek pretended to retreat according to Guo Rugui’s plan without mentioning Du Yuming’s other plan.
Comrades lurking in the Ministry of National Defense in Nanjing brought back news that Du Yuming was about to flee to the southeast, and the Central Military Commission asked Su Yu’s troops to prepare for ambush in the southeast. But Su Yu always felt that things were strange. Based on his judgment and analysis of Du Yuming, he should not go southeast. Du Yuming, who designed the trap, knew that whether he could bring Xuzhou’s troops back would depend on whether the strategy this time was successful. He repeatedly reminded Liu Zhi not to tell the secret.
After repeated consideration, Su Yu decided to increase troops in the southwest. He believed in his own judgment of Du Yuming. Soon, Du Yuming asked Qiu Qingquan and Sun Yuanliang to lead his troops to withdraw to the southeast. In order to confuse the Communist army, he led a large army to withdraw to the southwest.
Su Yu heard that there was a Kuomintang in the southeast, but he insisted on waiting. Su Yu determined that this was a smoke bomb thrown by Du Yuming in order to confuse them. Tan Zhenlin called Su Yu to tell Su Yu that Du Yuming did indeed retreat to the southwest. Su Yu immediately ordered an urgent march, and he must recover the delayed day. As a result, several columns have been on the road, Ding Dasheng and the troops on the road together, did not feel tired.
