a hit TV series “human right is the vicissitudes of life” in the audience attracted enthusiastic responses. Many people grew up on the hero’s Whampoa Military Academy has undergone interest. In real life, the Americans are hot across the Atlantic military test. According to the “Times” reported this year, people who apply for examination at West Point, a 9 percent increase over last year. And China’s entrance has just ended, said military and national defense this year is still fire, and some provinces, the number of applicants than last year more than 10%.
Huangpu China and the U.S. West Point, Frunze Soviet Union, said the world’s four major British military academy Sandhurst. Western military any different? Whampoa school conditions and not particularly good, West Point in the school has set up a large number of non-military programs, what is the brilliant achievements of the Huangpu, is what makes the West Point students represent the elite and good? China’s military education system, how will the battle for modern and contemporary society? May be in the Huangpu collision with West Point to get a little inspiration.
real Whampoa very simple
Although Whampoa star clouds, but the early days of the Huangpu Military Academy is not a senior. Selection, curriculum, management, and may be far less than many of today’s ordinary university. 1924 when the first Whampoa enrollment, there are 1200 people applied, the school admitted 350, 120 outlets, taking the proportion of about 40 percent, although slightly lower than the proportion of today’s national college admission, but basically two or three people in the test on one, absolutely can not be considered cream of the crop.
Whampoa students in the school not long. Well-known period of Whampoa students a total of five hours in school, but three years. The first enrollment period in May 1924, graduated into force on the end of November. Fifth is the splitting of a hurry because of Communist graduation. Such a short school system, not to mention with today’s master’s and doctoral ratio is compared with the general college or technical school also seemed too short.
Whampoa is not a complete set of subjects, even subjects from a simple look at the army is very simple. The entire period of the Kuomintang on the mainland, and Yansheng Jun Huangpu school setting only infantry, artillery, engineers, baggage, military police, political and other professionals. If you press to see the modern university or military school system, this set is just like a professional training school, far less than the modern university.
Whampoa Military students core curriculum is the “infantry drill book”, “tactical learning,” “weapons school”, “topography”, showing mainly infantry battlefield training for junior commanders, and graduates often are troops from the platoon to the grassroots level jobs dry up, with the difference of the future general galaxy.
history Whampoa is so simple, even some simple, but also as an ordinary person Whampoa. But is this Whampoa between the two parties to develop a large number of key generals.
glorious era success
said facilities and training venues from a hardware point of view, Whampoa Military Academy and the North of Baoding is worse than a large portion, Baoding Military Academy established no earlier experience in teaching natural than the latter. But in the ensuing decades, the Department has not Whampoa Baoding name of the first loud. What makes the Huangpu people?
answer era. Whampoa school students since 1924 to the founding of new China, has experienced the Northern Expedition, the warlord, the Agrarian Revolution, the War, the liberation war, some in founding and later went to North Korea to continue non-stop combat. War is the most brutal examination room, perseverance, courage, resourcefulness of people in combat again and again survived, and gradually master the laws of war, led a growing number of newcomers to win. Therefore, the Huangpu only to those well-known war have a chance to take the exam, the real generals was created three decades of the battlefield.
Whampoa who love history, they have more than others the opportunity to participate in this “General practice exam.” Reasons from their own perspective, Huangpu people are attracted by the theme of that era, the end of warlords, to achieve national independence, stable environment for people to fight for political rights and basic economic interests is the common aspiration of that group of young people, such enthusiasm and Whampoa Military Academy is different from Baoding old political and ideological education will take the initiative destined to meet a Whampoa has suffered a baptism. Looking from the outside conditions, when the KMT-CPC cooperation in all sectors of the elite new force together with the South, Huangpu, as the new regime a text of a military one of two institutions, the natural value by the parties. Chiang Kai-shek in mainland China during the reign of any person 23 years of Whampoa Military Academy, until the occasion of intense civil war in 1947 only then in charge of the school to sign off lin. In the KMT, the commander of the relationship with the general’s direct overlap is intertwined with the honors students, this is a unique development opportunities Whampoa people.
Also in the Communist Party, in addition to the early struggles of workers and peasants armed cadres in combat practice, training, military officers and men of the old thinking in the changing gradually grow, the Red Army is extremely influenced by the lack of formal military training but also reliable in the belief military cadres. This makes the Red Army who stand firm Whampoa, has increasingly become the backbone of all levels.
in the Red Army and the KMT, the Huangpu 20s when the regiment who have long, 30-something when the Army commander there. In the era of blood and fire, young people have voted footer enthusiasm to serve the country, the political commander of the heavy middle-aged cadres willing to directly examine and exceptional use. Opportunity situation right, humble birth to an extraordinary Whampoa Whampoa people.
West Point is relatively elite
Whampoa is rooted in Chinese soil and is really simple. It echoes in the United States and West Point is entirely Jagged strictly aristocratic elite culture.
West Point admissions than the much stricter then Whampoa, its enrollment target must be aged 17 to 22-year-old unmarried high school graduates or the equivalent of a soldier, standing 1.6 to 1.98 meters. To get the senior government officials (such as Vice President, members of Congress, Army officials) recommended on the basis of further examination and physical examination, merit.
admitted to West Point, West Point is not necessarily able to get a diploma. Here out of the system throughout the first year students out rate of 23%, eventually completing four years of graduate school students accounted for only about 70% of the total number.
West Point’s curriculum is much more complex than the Huangpu, and a large number of modern industrial production and business management practice. West Point’s curriculum is divided into liberal arts, science, engineering, military science and sports, military training was placed in a summer field.
opened earlier Whampoa Army battlefield tactical different characteristics of the early West Point is to create civil engineering courses. The initial stages of the Whampoa students to triumph in the battlefield known, and West Point students early in the 19th century most of the initial construction of the U.S. rail lines, bridges, ports and roads. It is said that “sea power” theory by Mahan’s father’s horse Han is a professor of engineering at West Point, the building used for military science, teaching students how they construct fortifications fortress.
Jagged elite education and training out of West Point who is different from the Huangpu people. Whampoa people focus on the military, and West Point, unless a war, there were many famous World War II, but also political, business, has done extensive community work. Business management community has prevailed, “details the success”, “no excuse”, “execution” and so on, can be found in the origins of West Point.
Whampoa tomorrow, Where
West Point students in addition to the high sense of discipline and good physical and mental qualities, but also with modern business needs of project management concepts and modern thinking. On the battlefield, West Point students to operational command of mathematical analysis to engineering thinking to resolve operational problems.
So, West Point admissions heat removal recession many young Americans optimistic about job security and free schooling, there is one important reason is that West Point and all U.S. schools have the education and integration in modern society ideas, making the graduates in and outside the military, there are bright prospects for development.
hot the past few years China’s military is continuing unabated. China is still a large number of military academies Whampoa period with heavy political thought and practice of military colors, but the elite troops in war and training Polytechnic West Point compared to the lack of a little of modern combat and adapt to modern society, technological literacy of many cadets and modern management thinking is far less than the high military and political literacy. In the field of scientific decision-making capacity in the business war on the scientific management objective is less than West Point students, this is the need for reflection. China’s future military, only to inherit Whampoa, Kang Da spirit, but also have a more perfect modern science curricula and training system. We believe that this day should not be far off.
