Yongnian liberation two years later than the victory. China’s Anti-Japanese War in 1945, the end of Japan’s unconditional surrender, and Yongnian county until October 5, 1947 until the liberation. The reason for this is caused by two puppet army captain, a guard is false Yongnian Wang Zemin, deputy United captain, a pseudo-independent brigade Xu Tieying Jing’an (nicknamed iron grinder), a total of 1,650 puppet troops, plus some of the traitor , bandits, bullies, the use of military forces engaged in the Shanxi my battle to fight the opportunity to Handan, dug Fuyang River levee, Yongnian Wali to turn on the water, submerged dike ring five, Pei Tun, up and down the piers, embankment slide, lotus mouth in 19 villages and 1.5 acres of land. Yongnian depression will form a north to south and 9 li, li 8 east to west, with a total area of about 70 large square li drenched.
Yongnian Yongnian depression in the northwest of the city on high ground, the walls 11 meters high, 8 m thick end of the city, outside the city but also water depth 5 m, 20 m wide moat around, easily defensible.
The city of Ping-Han lines – Handan City, October 1945 to the liberation, then the original southern Hebei Yongnian three partition in addition to more than 10 outside the county are successively liberated. For the rear Yongnian this isolated military base in the Shanxi Military Liu, Deng wanted it destroyed the head twice, once early in January 1946, the sixth season of the column to the use of ice lay Yongnian, but the temperature is high, the city on Tuesday, 300 meters deep lots without ice, were dropped. The second time was in June 1946, the second column in cooperation with local forces quickly captured the Yongnian City and north of the things Chengguan ice pit, killed the younger brother of iron grinding Xuchang Qi Li and Wang Zemin’s chief of staff, full secondary. June 15, the city’s military offensive was launched on Yongnian, our artillery on the walls of blasting, blasting pitch because of the new pontoon ride too close to the pontoon algorithm of fault, commandos can not move forward, the siege was forced to stop.
Two unsuccessful siege, more than 600 officers and men of my injuries, bloody lessons that we storm into the siege. In June 1946, we mobilized Yongnian, Fei Xiang, Quzhou, Jize, Handan County 5 50 000 workers, around 50 Yongnian depression repair a li-long City revised the size of the towers 59, 170 bunkers, repair cover operations room 164, near the deep water outside the city also erected more than 10,000 at the root stakes, and planted more than 10,000 pieces of various types of mines, outside the city and narrow surface Yongnian City West, North on both sides of the besieging forces by the PLA defense, the water wide, east and south sides by the militia sentry, not to mention the enemy out Qiangliang is also difficult to escape out of a military surveillance eyes. See the effect this big move, with the changes in the development of war, the enemy had a hard time, and ate each battlefield defeat, Yongnian City, a small group of cannon fodder for the degree of attention gradually faded out. Since September 17, 1947 since the end of Yongnian City dropped. Because of hunger, the enemy within the king, many persons complaining, and some want to kill them surrendered to the army.
October 1, 1947, the enemy again and again long Li Qingchun 2 find me carrying a basket of bullets 5 independent deputy head Cui Zhiguo, asking him to give him twelve pounds of rice, soup boil point came after he led the troops to surrender. Cui, deputy head gave him 30 kilos of rice, 20 kilos of bread, will he return, and told him to be careful. Lee went back, side arrangement of surrender, one side to see iron grinding head, grinding iron was about to touch shot dead, was a confidant of many to seize his hand, iron grinding spot to kill Lee, then Lee’s wife was also killed .
