In 1940, in Guo Village, where the New Fourth Army was stationed, a soldier ran to Ye Fei's headquarters and bluntly said that he had caught a Kuomintang lieutenant at the entrance of the village and kept asking to see Ye Fei.
When Ye Fei heard this, he put down the work in his hand, he felt that such a thing would definitely be strange, so he asked where the soldier was, and seeing Ye Fei asking, the soldier quickly said that he had been detained for safety.
So Ye Fei decided to meet the Kuomintang lieutenant in person, so he prepared the soldiers for interrogation, and then quickly went to the place of detention to find out.
So who is this lieutenant of the national army, and why did he name Ye Fei? What kind of story is there?
Quickly send intelligence
On June 27, 1940, Zheng Shaoyi, a lieutenant and political trainer of the Kuomintang, was taking a nap when suddenly the guard knocked on the door and told her that the army had issued a salary today, and she should remember to collect it.
Zheng Shaoyi turned over and sat up when she heard this, and her heart was shocked. Isn't it a good thing to pay military salaries? Why is Zheng Shaoyi so uneasy?
Zheng Shaoyi's unit was led by Li Changjiang and Li Mingyang, known as the "Second Li" unit, neither of whom was Chiang Kai-shek's lineage, so this unit could only be regarded as a motley army on the periphery of Chiang Kai-shek's troops.
Chiang Kai-shek has always been crony, and the Kuomintang army is seriously corrupt, so military salaries for troops like the "Second Li" are often not seen.
However, today is not a day of pay, how can there be military salaries. Zheng Shaoyi quickly figured out the reason, that is, there was going to be a war! Zheng Shaoyi hurriedly put on his military uniform and went out, and sure enough, as soon as he went out, the soldiers he saw were all smiling, and at a glance, he knew that this time the military salary was not only not in arrears, but even paid very much, and Zheng Shaoyi's heart became heavier.
She walked to a restaurant and found that many soldiers were drinking and having fun, so she walked over. The soldiers recognized her as a political trainer, followed by guards, and quickly stood up, and one of the company commanders explained to her that it was not a deliberate violation of military discipline, but that there would be a war tomorrow, or a big war, life and death were unpredictable, so they drank presumptuously.
"Going to war?" Zheng Shaoyi asked with a frown.
"Where to hit?"
The company commander put his head to Zheng Shaoyi's ear and said in a low voice, "Guo Cun." ”
Guo Cun, where the New Fourth Army was stationed, the "Er Li" unit originally planned to take action against the Communists, Zheng Shaoyi had a measure in her heart, knowing that this matter could not be delayed, so she immediately turned back to her room, took cigarettes and alcohol and found the Kuomintang officers, she explained to the guards that she wanted to celebrate today's pay with them.
Tomorrow there will be a war, but now drinking to celebrate is not allowed in the general army, but at that time this Kuomintang army was loose in military discipline, so the Kuomintang officers were very happy to see Zheng Shaoyi bring wine.
And because of Zheng Shaoyi's status as a political trainer, several officers knew everything and said everything. Soon, Zheng Shaoyi inquired clearly about their marching route and battle plan.
Generally speaking, Zheng Shaoyi is only a political trainer, and fighting a war is not within her responsibility, but she has to pay attention to these, inquire in many ways, and even take out her treasured tobacco and alcohol?
It turned out that she had another layer of identity, she was a Communist agent ambushed by the Kuomintang. At that time, there were three teams stationed in northern Jiangsu, namely the Han Deqin unit under the Kuomintang, the "Er Li" unit, and the New Fourth Army.
Unlike the motley army of the "Er Li" troops, Han Deloitte is a diehard and an activist in suppressing the communists, and although the Kuomintang and the Communist Party are now cooperating, Han Deloitte still has not stopped thinking about suppressing the communists.
At that time, Ye Fei led part of the New Fourth Army to gain a foothold in northern Jiangsu, and in order to better resist Japan and develop, and to organize the policy of "resisting the enemy, uniting with Li, and lonely Korea", Zheng Shaoyi lurked in the "Second Li" unit for the sake of "Lian-Li".
Zheng Shaoyi, who heard the news, can be said to be very anxious, although her face does not show, but her heart is already burning.
The New Fourth Army stationed in Guocun only has more than 2,000 people, and the "Er Li" troops are ten times more than them.
To make matters worse, Zheng Shaoyi's online is having other tasks at this time, unable to be contacted, and the news is 100,000 urgent, and Zheng Shaoyi is empty of information and cannot be sent.
After thinking for a moment, Zheng Shaoyi made a decision - to personally send intelligence, but this decision brought obstacles to her status as a political trainer.
Because the Kuomintang side equipped her with guards, and guards have always been with her, since they want to send intelligence, they need to find a way to get rid of the guards.
Zheng Shaoyi pretended to be going to buy eggs and asked the guards to wait in place for a while, but in fact, she turned around and entered a clothing store, changed her eye-catching military uniform, changed into a cheongsam, and sneaked away through the back door.
Getting rid of the guards, how to go to Guo Village next has become the biggest problem, and Zheng Shaoyi has only one choice, that is, to send intelligence on foot.
Zheng Shaoyi's "Er Li" unit is 18 kilometers away from Guo Village, plus there is a lot of water in northern Jiangsu, and there is a dense water network between the two places, and there is no suitable means of transportation.
At this time, there was only half a day left before the time for "Er Li" to attack Guo Village, even if the intelligence was delivered, Ye Fei's troops needed reaction time to deploy, Zheng Shaoyi gritted his teeth and ran wildly on the road.
At this time, the sun has set from the west, and there are not many people along the way, it can be said that the black lights are blinding, and Zheng Shaoyi is not familiar with the road conditions, and he is even more embarrassed.
To save time, she can't make a detour, so she keeps wading across the river. Along the way, the white cheongsam she bought at the ready-to-wear store was already soaked, and it was full of mud, and there were many small branches in her hair, but she couldn't take care of any of this.
After walking for hours, Guo Cun was finally in front of him. Zheng Shaoyi's eyes lit up with hope, but soon, she found that there was a river in front of her.
Unlike the small river she had trodden before, this river was deep and wide and had to swim through. Fatally, Zheng Shaoyi can't swim. Fortunately, there is no way to go. Zheng Shaoyi searched for tools to cross the river, and a small wooden boat appeared in front of her.
The boatman was sleeping, suddenly woke up by someone, he opened his eyes and was shocked, at this time Zheng Shaoyi's image was very similar to that of a water ghost.
Fortunately, the boatman heard her speak, and he knew that it was a person and not a ghost. It's just that on a big night, a little girl looks like she wants to cross the river, which is too strange. But looking at Zheng Shaoyi was very anxious, the boatman did not hesitate too much to get on the boat. A wooden boat sailed on the river, and Zheng Shaoyi finally arrived at Guo Village.
18 kilometers, even if a young adult can not say whether he can go down, why was Zheng Shaoyi able to complete these 18 kilometers at that time, and he also waded through several rivers in the process?
It turned out that Zheng Shaoyi was a martial arts practitioner and a personal disciple of Liu Dianbi, a martial arts master in Yangzhou. When Liu Dianbi saw Zheng Shaoyi for the first time, he begged for an apprentice and wanted to accept her as a disciple, calling her a good seedling for learning martial arts. Others need to pay tuition fees to learn martial arts, but Liu Dianbi does not charge Zheng Shaoyi, which is enough to see Zheng Shaoyi's roots.
Having a good martial art is one of the reasons why the organization chose Zheng Shaoyi as an agent to lurk in the "Er Li" troops, however, the more important reason is that Zheng Shaoyi is close in thought, moved closer to the Communist Party at a young age, and after being introduced to the party, his ideological purity can be said to be impeccable.
Determined to serve the motherland
Zheng Shaoyi was born in Yangzhou, Jiangsu, and her original name was actually Li Zhenfang. His father is Li Zhiming, who works in a grocery store and has 6 children in the family, and Zheng Shaoyi is the smartest of them.
Although Li Zhiming's identity is not obvious, he loves to read, and he found that his daughter Zheng Shaoyi is very intelligent, and not reading is simply a waste of good seedlings, so he sent Zheng Shaoyi to school with the strength of the whole family.
At school, Zheng Shaoyi came into contact with the "Chenming Society", a peripheral organization of the underground party of the CCP in Yangzhou at that time. Despite her young age, Zheng Shaoyi was quickly drawn to the communist ideology in it, and she began to wonder why her father was so hardworking but often had a hard time feeding at home, and why the landlord bureaucrats could do whatever they wanted.
In 1937, the Lugou Bridge Incident caused the Japanese army to invade China in an all-round way, and soon Yangzhou also fell. In this situation of war, his father Li Zhiming found it difficult to support the family. In order to reduce the burden on her family, Zheng Shaoyi voluntarily dropped out of school, thinking of going to Yan'an to follow the Communist Party to make a revolution.
But this matter was simple to say and difficult to do, so Zheng Shaoyi stayed in Yangzhou. Despite this, the revolutionary enthusiasm in her heart did not diminish, and she often participated in anti-Japanese demonstrations.
Her actions infuriated the Japanese, and her father, Li Zhiming, was imprisoned, where Li became acquainted with Xia Lan, a member of the Communist underground.
Xia Lan explained communism to these inmates persecuted by the Japanese in prison, Li Zhiming listened to it, and he figured out everything he couldn't understand before, he understood his daughter's approach, and asked Xia Lan to introduce Zheng Shaoyi to the party.
Taking this opportunity, Zheng Shaoyi joined the Communist Party, and under the training of the organization, he became an excellent Communist Party member and was sent to the "Er Li" unit as a special agent.
Unfortunately, Han Deloitte, taking advantage of his identity as the superior of "Er Li", ordered "Er Li" to lead troops to attack the New Fourth Army, and the opportunity of "United Lee" was in jeopardy. Zheng Shaoyi also had to give up his identity as a cover and sneak back to the New Fourth Army to send intelligence.
Fall on one's feet
As soon as the boat landed, Zheng Shaoyi pulled out her legs and flew to Guo Village. The soldiers of the New Fourth Army who were guarding saw a white shadow rushing towards them in the darkness and became alert.
Several New Fourth Army soldiers raised their guns and shouted at Zheng Shaoyi: "Who is it?" Zheng Shaoyi hurriedly said: "I want to see Chief Ye Fei, there is an urgent military situation to report!" ”
The soldier did not know the identity of Zheng Shaoyi, and the chief did not say that he could see it. The Kuomintang's convenient practice of stuffing money is even more unworkable in the New Fourth Army.
Zheng Shaoyi had to blow himself up in the "vest" and confessed: "I am a lieutenant of the Kuomintang!" Hearing this, the soldiers were even more surprised, they looked at the girl in front of them in this dirty white cheongsam suspiciously, thinking that it was indeed very suspicious, so they arrested Zheng Shaoyi.
Zheng Shaoyi was very cooperative, and even disliked those New Fourth Army members for being too slow. The soldiers were full of doubts in their hearts and brought Zheng Shaoyi, whose hands were tied, to the detention place.
I heard that a Kuomintang lieutenant came to the New Fourth Army in the middle of the night, and this news immediately attracted the attention of Chief Ye Fei. Zheng Shaoyi finally met the commander of the advancing unit of the New Fourth Army.
After listening to Zheng Shaoyi's confession of his identity as an agent, Ye Fei was shocked and hurriedly relaxed, he knew that the news that could make Zheng Shaoyi give up his undercover identity to send intelligence must be very important. Zheng Shaoyi told the story of "Er Li" about his upcoming attack on Guocun, including the time, combat strategy, and so on.
Ye Fei listened with a solemn expression, knowing that if it weren't for Zheng Shaoyi rushing all the way, his New Fourth Army unit could be said to be fierce. Fortunately, now the enemy's marching information has been fully mastered, and the advantage is on the side of our army.
Zheng Shaoyi fainted as soon as he finished telling the information, after all, the physical strength consumed by rushing eighteen kilometers in a few hours is too much. Ye Fei was very grateful in his heart, let people send Zheng Shaoyi to rest, and then began to deploy how to deal with the "Er Li" troops.
In the early morning, the "Er Li" troops were raised. Li Changjiang and Li Mingyang thought that the New Fourth Army led by Ye Fei had only 2,000 men, but they had 20,000 people, so they were full of confidence and felt that they could show their faces in front of Chiang Kai-shek with this unjust battle that deceived the few and broke the covenant, but they did not know that they were just a tool of Han Deloitte, not to mention that the New Fourth Army had now received news.
As soon as the "Er Li" troops arrived at Guocun, they launched an attack. However, unlike what they thought would be won in one blow, the New Fourth Army seemed to have been prepared for a long time, and even knew their combat strategy very well.
What's more, this New Fourth Army not only could not be attacked for a long time, but reinforcements also rushed over in time. After a while, the three regiments of the "Er Li" troops were already captured.
Ye Fei also thought of fighting for "Er Li", so he shouted in front of the formation, asking "Er Li" to abandon the secret and turn to the light, and stop being Han Deloitte's leading bird.
It is a pity that "Er Li" is stubborn, thinking that he can lead the remaining troops to take the New Fourth Army led by Ye Fei. Considering that it was the period of the Anti-Japanese War and that the struggle in the woli would only weaken the anti-war force, the New Fourth Army changed its strategy and did the ideological work of the soldiers of the "Second Li" unit.
Soldiers were already oppressed by their superiors, and their salaries were often not paid, and they would only be generous when they asked for their lives in battle. Soon, they were moved by the idea that everyone in the New Fourth Army was equal, and the people of the "Second Li" unit were discouraged, and many people defected to the New Fourth Army.
Ye Fei gave "Er Li" another chance, and showed sincerity, as long as "Er Li" maintained a neutral attitude between the Kuomintang and the Communist Party, he would release seven hundred prisoners. "Er Li" was helpless at this time, so he agreed to Ye Fei's terms.
Because Zheng Shaoyi's identity was revealed, the Kuomintang hated her so much that it publicly offered a reward, and even threatened to "skin her and tear her bones." In order to protect Zheng Shaoyi, the organizational master changed her name, "Li Zhenfang" became a thing of the past, and Zheng Shaoyi also stayed in the New Fourth Army to do civilian work.
Decades later, Zheng Shaoyi's children worked in the political and legal system of Zhejiang. The story of her "night run" many years ago is only buried in her heart and is not known to her children.
Only once, when his son who joined the army showed off his gun knowledge with his siblings, Zheng Shaoyi objected, arguing that the barge gun was better to use, which made the children suspicious, because they had the impression that their mother should not know anything about martial guns. However, Zheng Shaoyi refused to say more, and the mystery was buried.
Until General Ye Fei arrived in Zhejiang, he asked if there was a female comrade named Zheng Shaoyi, and said that "she saved the life of the New Fourth Army."
At this time, Zheng Shaoyi's children learned that their mother originally had such a thrilling past, and the underground party Zhou Xiaomei in "Eastward Overture" was based on her.
Zheng Shaoyi was still shouting "I am not a bitch" when she was dying, and she did such a merit that year and contributed to the victory of the famous "Guocun Defense War", but she did not use this as a capital to show off.
After all, in the hearts of the older generation of Communist Party members, serving the country and the people is an unshirkable responsibility, and we should all pay high respect to them!
