At the beginning of the 20th century, China's warlord era was full of upheaval and complexity. And in this era of war, warlord Zhang Zongchang is a high-profile character whose life is full of dramatic events. However, in stark contrast to his majesty on the battlefield, there is a series of subtle and complex events hidden in his personal life.
Zhang Zongchang was not born rich, and his early life was full of poverty and hardship. Born in Shandong at the end of the Qing Dynasty, he lost his home in a severe drought and had to leave his homeland at the age of 16 to Siberia. In a strange land, he began his career as a timber trader, and although it was not his dream career, poverty forced him to make ends meet.
However, Zhang Zongchang's wisdom and courage quickly made him famous in the local area and became the object of admiration. Chen Qimei, a magnate, was full of praise for his talent, so Zhang Zongchang defected to him. However, he soon realized that Chen Qimei was not his ideal employer, so he left in search of new opportunities.
This opportunity appeared next to Feng Guozhang, but at first Feng Guozhang did not show much interest in the young Zhang Zongchang. This is a low point for Zhang Zongchang, but he firmly believes that opportunities are always reserved for those who dare to fight. However, Feng Guozhang fell unexpectedly soon after, and Zhang Zongchang saw the opportunity and decided to turn his attention to Zhang Zuolin.
In contact with Zhang Zuolin, Zhang Zongchang skillfully displayed his talent and won Zhang Zuolin's trust. He finally found a platform on which he could use his talents and began to emerge.
However, despite his outstanding performance on the battlefield, Zhang Zongchang's personal life is in the spotlight. He had multiple aunts, which caused an uproar at the time. The cheating of an aunt left him distressed, but he showed extraordinary tolerance. Instead of dealing with the adjutant with the harshness of a military man, he chose understanding and forgiveness so that they could live happily ever after. This move deeply touched the subordinates, who lamented how lucky they were to follow such a benevolent leader.
However, Zhang Zongchang is not only on his good side. In the warlord era, he was known as the "Great General of the Five Poisons" because of his wanton plunder and pushing the lives of the people to a desperate situation. Despite his victory on the battlefield, he paid for the hatred and pain of the people.
In the war in Shandong, he fought to the death with other warlords, and the people suffered from it. However, the appearance of an old friend Chen Qiaoyuan changed everything, and he resolutely sided with Zhang Zongchang and supported him through the difficulties.
Most impressive is an assassination in which an assassin, Zheng Jicheng, decides to end Zhang Zongchang's life. However, a mysterious man in black appeared in time to stop the assassination and save Zhang Zongchang's life. This scene surprised Zhang Zongchang deeply, and also made him realize that his behavior had attracted the hatred of the people, but at the same time, there were people willing to protect him.
Zhang Zongchang's life is full of ups and downs and drama. His story reminds us that power can blind people to goodness, but it can also show benevolence. In an era full of strife and turmoil, we should bear in mind the lessons of history, strive to become sensible, kind and responsible people, and contribute our own strength to the harmony and stability of society.
