Han Wei was captured after the Xiangjiang Battle and returned to Yan’an for half a year. Chairman Mao was anxious Q:Why don’t you look at me?
Among all the founding generals, General Han Wei was very senior. He followed the great men to participate in the revolution since the Autumn Harvest Uprising. After the establishment of the Fourth Red Army, he became the first guard platoon of great men. Long, won the trust of great men. But after the Battle of Xiangjiang, he finally returned to Yan’an, but he was reluctant to see the great man for half a year. Why?
Han Wei, born in 1906, is A native of Huangpi County, Hubei. Joined the Communist Party of China in 1926 and participated in the Northern Expedition and the Autumn Harvest Uprising.
On February 9, 1929, the Fourth Army marched towards southern Jiangxi and southern Fujian and was seated in a small village. There were gunshots in the early morning, and everyone did not respond. Mr. Zhu woke up from his sleep, picked up a machine gun, let the great man retreat from the back door, covered himself, and ordered his men to break through the front door to attract enemy fire. After the great man left, Mr. Zhu also commanded the guard squad to break through.
After that, the troops stayed in the mountains for two days and made a profound summary:The guards were negligent and the guards were too weak. Previously, there was only one guard squad to protect the great men. Therefore, the organization decided to form a guard platoon. The leader chose Han Wei.
Since then, he has served as the Independent Eighth Division of the Fujian Military Region Division commander, chief of staff of the Fujian Military Region, commander of the 57th Division of the Red Nineteenth Army, and commander of the 100th Regiment of the 34th Division.
Everyone knows that the Red Army began the Long March after the fifth”anti-encirclement and suppression” defeat. On this difficult Long March, it was the Red Thirty-fourth Division where Han Wei was carrying out cover work to ensure In order to ensure the safety of the main force, this team is also known as the”Red Army Defender”.
During the Battle of Xiangjiang, the Red 34 The army fought desperately, successfully repelling the enemy’s tail chase and side ambush, and finally the main force of the Red Army successfully crossed the river. Although the cover mission was completed perfectly, the enemy blocked all the roads of the Xiangjiang River. The Red 34th Army was deeply surrounded by the enemy. All soldiers fought a fierce breakout battle, and finally outnumbered. The commander Chen Shuxiang was arrested and killed. , The political commissar was shot and killed. Except for regimental leader Han Wei who jumped off a cliff to recover his life in an emergency, all more than 6,000 people in the division fell on the battlefield.
General Han fell on a tree branch When he was seen by an old man, he recognized that this was the Red Army, so he cooked a bowl of pumpkin soup and sweet potatoes for him. The next day, General Han gave his cowhide satchel to the old man as a souvenir, so he went to search for troops. road.
At this time, he didn’t have a clue. He didn’t know where the troops were. He could only blindly search, begging all the way along the street, and came to Wuchang for more than two months, but he didn’t expect to be betrayed by traitors and taken to prison. In the end, it was the family who heard about it and took care of him and left him alive. In 1937, when the War of Resistance broke out in an all-round way, our army requested the National Government to release our personnel to fight the enemy together, and then General Han regained his freedom.
When the great man knew that General Han was still alive, he was very happy. He has been waiting for General Han to come to him. However, this wait lasted half a year. It turned out that General Han was very burdened. He thought that he had not fought a good battle in the Xiangjiang Battle. He was sorry for the sacrificed comrades who went to the Kuomintang prison again, so he dared not meet the great man.
In the end, it was the great man who ordered Liu Yalou to notify Han Wei to come to see him. See you again. The great man pretended to ask:”Why didn’t you come to see me for half a year?” General Han’s face was red to the root of his neck with a”swish”.
The great man broke the embarrassment and said to him with a smile:”My guard platoon leader is unscathed!” The great man was so kind that let Han Wei relax, and the two talked freely for a long time.
After understanding the situation, the great man affirmed General Han’s performance in the Battle of Xiangjiang, encouraged him to throw away his inner baggage and pressure, and hoped that he would continue to fight. General Han also became clear after hearing this. , Apply to lead troops to fight on the front line.
After that, General Han made great achievements , Became the commander of the Sixty-seventh Army and was awarded the rank of lieutenant general at the award ceremony in 1955.
General Han Wei still has a heart knot, always thinking that he is ashamed, and often chants:“The Minxi children I brought out have all sacrificed. I am sorry to their relatives…I This general was exchanged with blood. I cannot be with them if I live, and I will be with them if I die, so that my heart can be peaceful.”
On April 8, 1992, General Han passed away. According to his will, his son took the ashes of his After a special trip from Beijing to the Minxi Revolutionary Cemetery, the general was able to return to the place where he fought once again to accompany his former comrades in arms.
