Liu Taihang: school to school revolutionaries after the founding of the Republic in Sichuan do the first of the academy, so the cause for great concern. Was the first group of students of the school school a total of more than 400 people, my father was a row of a group of points in the second brigade. At this time, he has put on the new uniforms of the yellow-green vertical collar tight, hair management has become a small flat, completely is a valiant, dignified soldier looks like.
my father liked to read military books of all times, such as grandson, Qi, Liu Bowen, and other people’s art of war, and later heard him say that he was able to export chapters.
After graduation, he was assigned to Xiong Kewu troops when the trainee was Xiongke Wu Shu Army first division. Soon as the platoon leader took part in the the Taoyuan war. Battle to fight very brutal, and the entire front shrapnel flying, smoke, and several attacks have not worked. Finally, my father waving a sword, loudly Hansha again initiated the assault. The soldiers and what greatly, swarm, and finally won the positions of the enemy, so he is FireWire was promoted to company commander.
later my father took part in the protect the country, law enforcement, and Taoyuan war, he fought Bashanshushui, played a lot of victories, set repeatedly exploits, his military talent and fearless spirit of constantly displayed, for which he also paid the price several times and nearly died, also blinded in one eye, so in Sichuan military, there Liu blind “in the title of the” one-eyed general.
Correspondent: American Women Writers, Agnes Smedley, the great road, “a book, a paragraph on Zhu De and review yourself and your father to participate in the revolution, said:” People are walking different paths. people to do the warlord and not to repent; some people with the warlords into the quagmire, but eventually found a new path of revolution; others saw a new road, but because in the past so deeply and unable to extricate themselves. many KMT soldiers become The new warlord Liu Bocheng and I found and embarked on a new path of revolution. “before finally joined the Communist Party in Sichuan army, the Shuai served as head of the Front Commander and the prestigious Sichuan famous. In the National Revolutionary Army, he rose to the rank tentatively numbered the 15th Army commander, in the old army is entitled to a favorable and well-known senior military officers, then why in 1926 joined the Communist Party? Line:
Mrs Lau One day, my father walking in the streets, I heard an old man to frighten the child is crying, said: “You cry ‘Liu blind’ you away!” The child about cry. My dad is not too happy, “Liu blind man.” Wal-Mart actually be used as a tool to intimidate children. This little thing, he was very uneasy. My father often said that he was reluctant to fall into some confusion in the athletic field. He often, alas, the two sides at war, after all, as a last resort. Especially when he recalled those who have been trampled by both crops, the injured people’s minds even more uncomfortable.
1923, my father led his troops in fierce fighting with the Northern Warlords team. While approaching enemy positions to look at the terrain, the enemy of a bullet hit the arteries of the great vessels of the right leg leg swollen Laocu, the excessive bleeding later unconscious, so he was sent to Chengdu for medical treatment, and then rest for some. This time he met Yuzhang. The Yuzhang also introduced him to a Young dark male. They are almost every day to meet the current political situation, talk the future of China to explore the strategy of national salvation. From politics to economy, from society to life, from diplomatic to military, has been to socialism. My father thought a fundamental change, started by a democrat into a communist.
Of course, in the choice of political orientation, my father is very cautious serious, he successively read many books of Marxism, and careful study, in-depth thinking about the Chinese revolution and in the future their own way to go . He said: “If you saw the banner bowed, I feel too wrong, because I am not very sure, for the factions is working hard and deep research in the future before they can determine its side Road.” After two or three years learning visits and in-depth thinking, in May 1926, the Young dark public Yuzhang introduction, he joined the Communist Party of China.
Paid silver dollar “Liangshan”
father joined the Communist Party, family status has been very good, but when he put these possessions get rid of all … He Changgong talk about my father how to embark on the revolutionary road, once wittily said: ‘Shuai joined the Communist Party is not easy, he was in his pocket the silver dollar the mountains.’
he was surprised with my father, I never been cruel to you, you are buried in the mountains. Dad told him where the things I did not die.
Reporter: It is said then to your father’s treatment of ocular injury is a German doctor, had surgery without anesthesia, the doctor very, very moved, that your father for the Army of God ? Line:
Mrs Lau was my father’s eyes blinded, Yuan Shikai government everywhere to arrest him, so he was around to escape. Because the wounds of the flesh began to rot, seeing no other way. One of his lieutenants to find a basket, and carried him from Fuling Chongqing. Later to find a “benevolent Hospital” (now Chongqing, the Second Affiliated Hospital), the hospital is run by the German, a good doctor – a German doctor to rule his eyes.
surgery when he asked the doctor: anesthetics on my mind, has no effect? ??”
doctor said:” Of course influential. “
He said: “I undergo an operation without anesthetic.”
was relatively simple, small hospital equipment. In order to protect the brain, Liu Bocheng refused the use of anesthetics. At that time, the doctor knife to repair cut the carrion of new growth, each cut in the pain terrible, unbearable. But my father was always sitting there, motionless for more than three hours before and after surgery, his impassive. Such as dressing is completed, the doctor see him leaning on the chair handle was saturated with sweat, and asked him if he hurt it? My father said: “This is nothing, only cut 74 knife Well, a mere trifle!”
doctor was surprised and asked: “how do you know?” He said: “Every time you pull a knife I markings a number can not go wrong, can not go wrong. “
he always felt by the brain, the brain is not good never do, so his surgery without anesthesia, I believe. Later, doctors thumbs said: “great, great, you are the true Chinese hero, you’re the Army of God, the army of God!”
Reporter: But then your father’s eyes are blind. What is the specific cause?
Liu Pacific line: To be honest, my father’s eyes go blind is reading to see more.
about 1965, when he went to the Sino-Soviet border inspections every day to read, my mother and I tried to persuade him that he was, and later the vision a sudden drop. He also suffers from glaucoma, but the northeast of the two doctors misdiagnosed, said that older vision should decline. Glaucoma attack on the spit, vomited particularly powerful. Later returned to Beijing, Beijing Hospital, surgery, doctors say surgery is non-blind and can not be. About knee surgery a little can see that less than a year completely out of sight, leaving only light perception, where bright he knew, but could not see anything. Since then, eyes blind.
reporters: For a military strategist, conductor, blindness is very cruel. When your father was 73 years old, the Shuai blind, mental state how?
Liu Taihang: until the eyes can not see, he has often told us that the future war broke out I can – for this even went to the doctor talked a lot as a staff officer. We feel that he has over 70 years of age is about 80-year-old is almost impossible. However, he told doctors say, you put my eyes cure give me a magnifying glass, magnifying glass and then took the map I can to the President or to the headquarters as a staff officer. Liu Bocheng,
“The enemy advances into
September 6, 1937, rain tapping people on the cheek, in Sanyuan County, Shaanxi Province Qiaozhen, Liu Bocheng teachers standing in the review stage, loudly announced: “Today is our Eighth Route Army 129th Division gave birth to the day.” tens of thousands of voice as a voice oath: “Japanese bandits out of China , refusing to go home! “magnificent voices echoed in the sky of the Loess Plateau. 129th Division command post and seven 69 Regiment advance team
shortly, Liu Bocheng personally led the mighty, Dongduhuanghe, to jindongnan anti-Japanese front-line marching, began to create the Taihang Mountains Anti-Japanese Base era.
Reporter: The 1942 wheat harvest season, the Japanese suddenly against the Taihang Mountains on an unprecedented scale of the May mop-up “, the Eighth Route Army headquarters offices have been hit hard to break through the transfer, Zuo Quan, Deputy Chief of Staff sacrifice. In early June, the Japanese launched the focus of the Taihang Mountains in southern offensive, directed at a 29 division headquarters. But after four days and nights, hard work, your father, led by the 129th Division victory highlight the Japanese encirclement. The Okamura Ningci the “mopping up” only one Liu Bocheng Group “was not damaged in the future when more attention.
Mrs Lau: was the breakout of the 129th Division there are three scenarios: a best a second choice, an unwise move.
as him, of course, hope is the best policy. The so-called “best way” is when the Japanese came around, the main force corps and organs together to find ways from the enemy surrounded the gap, especially in the open space from the forces and the forces combine to wear out, and then around to the back of the Japanese devils fight This is the best policy.
second choice is surrounded by the Japanese devils, not to find the gap, but to create conditions, insert the open loopholes, and then drilled the go. Typical is often with a small force to attack the Japanese devils seize the Japs want to destroy the mood of the Communist Party, a “siege” of the Japanese devils out of the loopholes, to break through in this case is the second choice.
worst of it is desperately resistance, in other words, the enemy advances, we retreat “to the last place to retreat, surrounded by all the enemies, this is the worst. When in command of the entire anti-May mop-up “, he played an important role, one is ready to earlier, find that the enemy attack began to prepare the enemy to when we have to prepare well. have long left the original division headquarters, the Japs thought the division headquarters is still there, “encirclement and suppression” of course it empty.
the Japanese 129th Division “mop-up” from the June 9, but he was from May 21, on the 22nd start. This is the first feature. The second characteristic is the expected results encountered in the future was “besieged” and, in fact, about three results, but still want to efforts toward the first result. 15,000 Japs, but my father only two thousand come, of which there are over seven hundred staff officers. His own with a small force in front of Pathfinder investigation, relatively large forces left behind. Pull distance is slightly larger point, plus the command is probably not too handy, the results should have been on schedule to go echelon was 20 minutes late. 20 minutes late, got lost.
