In 1937, "77" incident, the Japanese aggressors wantonly launched a war of aggression, to make Chinese people into their wanton instruments of slavery. The North China Plain was first ravaged by invaders, and the masses of the people were in dire straits.

The Eight Route Army China under the leadership of the Communist Party in the Anti Japanese national salvation under the banner to the North China Plain, the unity of the Anti Japanese people, desperate and fight the Japanese invaders.

The war of resistance against Japan brought hope to the Chinese nation!

When I joined the Eight Route Army, the first thing I thought of was to take part in the fight, kill the Japs, and avenge the people.

I was eager to take part in the fight. The company fought several times and I wasn't even up there. I was a member of the four communication, do not want the war correspondent in charge of the battle class. But, I just joined the army soon, afraid to say they don't even soldiers when I was in a silent, had to do.

As soon as I entered the Eight Route Army, the revolutionary college, I found everything new and interesting to the army. This makes my eyes gradually open up, the heart is more and more bright. However, everything seems very strange, often confused me, can not be solved.

Company commander Wu Fawu and instructor Zheng Sansheng speak in front of the queue, the opening is "comrades."!" As long as we heard "Comrades" three words, at once stood, a chest upright, straight ahead, neat queue and mighty.

I don't know why these three words are so powerful. I don't know what "comrades" means. The more I don't understand, the more I pay attention to the effect of "comrade" after the company commander, and I feel the magic every time. In my heart, "Comrades" on a layer of mysterious color to mongolia.

"Comrade" three words made me observe and understand for a long time, or do not understand it. The more I understood, the more I longed to really understand the meaning of the three words. One evening, the sun was just buried in the horizon, wrapped in mist mist field. I finished cleaning the yard, pick the tank, and a clerk went to the village.

The clerk in the company as an intellectual, everyone said he drank more ink, knowledge in the stomach. In fact, he has only been in private school for several years. I always wanted to ask for advice. What do you mean by "comrade", then I finally got a good chance?.

We stood in the ancient village under the tree. I watched a dark green leaves, while watching the instrument's face, he was glad to see that you asked him:

"Clerk, I want to ask you something."."

"What is it?""

I embarrassed to lower my head and said:

"I don't know what it means to be 'comrades'. Would you please make it clear to me?"

The clerk thought and scratched the back of his head, and said, "there is no truth in it.". You see, does that mean 'comrades' are people of the same ambition, that is, like-minded. For example, we revolutionary fighters, eat a pot of rice, sleep is a big shop, want to be a big problem: fight devil, save China, will lead a good life. That is to say, everyone's ideals and pursuits are the same. We are each other, that is, comrade relations, which is called comrades."

This is the first time I've heard the most detailed explanation of "comrades" when I joined the army. What documents open for me the heart of a window, all of a sudden, I was on the word "Comrades" close together, because I am also a like-minded in the revolutionary ranks one! When the company commander, instructor again in front of the queue and said "Comrades" three words, I am also very proud of your feet together to experience the national attention, as if the task, the revolutionary armed forces of the revolutionary soldier proud, like a veteran like.

Just understand a little "comrades" meaning, I and instructor Zheng Sansheng made a difficult. It is at the beginning of September 1938, troops from the Great Plains Hebei return Beiyue road from Xushui, across the pinghan County on the north side, and went 5 days, the troops into a village west of the County mountain camp. At that time, fellow home lighting is no substitute oil for kerosene. We were tired from the march for more than half a month. At the camp, correspondent can not rest, work is the most tired, to take the company commander, instructor shop, and burn the feet of water, clean the yard. This evening, the light there is no oil, I went to chuishiban to Tim oil lamp. Before oil is added to the document, I add oil, this is the first time. At that time, I don't know how much more, when the oil is poured accidentally, oil spill out a little bit, see the instructor oil spill out, very unhappy, I asked loudly: "you are not even oil Tim? We can not landlord, then waste?"

I said with chagrin, "I haven't got much."."

The instructor thought I deliberately contradict him, he gave me a slap in the face.

This time, I can not be satisfied, that night to find a row of vice secretary of the Party branch, Zhang Xianzhong (1938, company branch secretary is not the commander, instructor, sometimes a platoon leader, deputy secretary of the Party branch office), said: "I will not say the relationship between the revolutionary army and people gay relationships? Comrade, how can instructors reach out to hit people?"

A platoon is an old Red Army, Fujian was a small body, looked very strong, the people are very enthusiastic, very stable, very popular quanlian soldiers respect. So, we all have something in mind, we love to talk to him. He listened to me, was Agape and tongue-tied I do not know how to answer. Perhaps he did not expect that a new soldier should ask such questions, and look at his expression of surprise and excitement, and he was more convinced. He asked me what happened before and after, and I told him the truth. After listening, he said, "you are very conscious and reflect very well to the organization.". So, what do you want to do about it?"

I said, "I'm not a correspondent."!" I feel very tired when the correspondent does not say, thankless, instead of being hit by wonangqi, as in the class, good fighters. So I asked for the fight class, and I would go home without telling me to come home from work.

Zhang, deputy platoon leader, mused for a moment and answered, "well, let's examine it and let you know."."

On the second day, the instructor reviewed me. I looked at the instructor's sincere attitude and listened to his kindly words. Or the revolutionary army is good, did wrong, regardless of leadership or comrades, the same review, the same admit mistakes, not compensation. The landlord must fight to scold is not our poor homely food, when people see, who gave you a good face?

And then the instructor and solemnly told me, that is according to my opinion, let me work, to the eight class soldier. I was very pleased to hear this decision, he left a backpack.

Zhang Deputy later and I often talk to me about the country and the nation, class and the cause of communism and many other revolutionary principles, teach me how to be a loyal and brave, selfless revolutionary fighters, with each other, the establishment of deep feelings. Later, he died gloriously in the battle. I was very sad and I missed him all the time.

The autumn of 1938, can be said to be an eventful year. The Japanese army commander Teuchi Junichi for the lifting of North China, Guangzhou, Wuhan post menace from the rear, the offensive operations from one of its O division, twenty-six division, nine division and a O independent second mixed brigade, fourth brigade of independent hybrid meter of more than 5 people, the Shanxi Chahar Hebei border area take the siege tactics attack from various directions, in an attempt to destroy I Jinchaji border area.

The Shanxi Chahar Hebei military region commander and political commissar Nie Rongzhen, in command of military forces and one or two O division, in close cooperation with the people's active support and brother forces, Nick, consumption, fatigue, delayed the Japanese, resolutely crushed the Japanese siege. The whole North China Beiyue guerrilla war by four, the Japanese blocked numerous blocking, impossible to guard against, paid a heavy price.

In late September, after the Japanese I was a heavy blow, and dispatched thousands of encirclement of the ministry.

Our rallying cry is "smash the enemy's siege and defend the base areas of the border areas."."

Wang Kuai is a small town, stationed in the enemy about two brigades (ie two battalions) forces. In order to crack down on the enemy's arrogance, we attacked him and determined to wipe out the enemy.

The battle started at 7 o'clock in the morning, four of us in the direction of attack on the strong resistance by the Japanese aggressors. In the attack, we even lined up one or two platoon members. The fighting lasted until 4 p. m., and we even had more than 20 casualties, and the fighting became more and more fierce.

The enemy's defensive positions were finally broken through. The rest of the 6 people in our class, along the northern town of Wangkuai hills attack continues to recalcitrant remnants of the enemy. This time is at 5 o'clock, the sun from the horizon and two bamboo pole high mountains, boundless hills and shiny, ground corn, sorghum, sesame seeds in the wind rustling, sporadic gunfire occasionally came, make our pursuit shrouded in intense and tense atmosphere.

This is the first time that I have fought directly in the combat class. I can not help but feel a little nervous, but when I see other comrades calm, calm and fearless, my courage is great and I am not afraid of anything!

When we are searching forward, suddenly, "shouts", from sesame jumped five or six devils, all of them with bayonets, swords in the sunset light, flashing a light. We have not had time to shoot the enemy, "ah ah" bayonet in front of us, a melee fight hand to hand with the war to start.

The Japanese were trained rigorously and had a good bayonet. But I saw in their eyes that their hearts were empty and their eyes were burning with despair. Facing the enemy, the 6 of us rushed forward bravely to fight the enemy desperately. Because of continuous fighting, our physical exertion, there have been 3 comrades fell, the rest of us and 3 people are still grappling with the devil. At this time, my left forefinger is enemy bayonet chopped, blood DC, I endured severe pain, teeth, after several rounds, finally put the bayonets into a devil's chest in comrades of action.

I was under 15 years old at the time.

The key moment when we battle with the devil, we rushed to the other comrades. Everyone roared rush past, the devil killed all of the remaining. Wang Kuaizhen's enemies were wiped out most of the group I. The devils were crushed to mop up the base areas of our border areas, which effectively encouraged and strengthened the confidence of the army and the people in the war of resistance.

Bleeding and sacrifice, maybe in a flash. And who shed blood and sacrifice for that? The question came later, but it wasn't that simple. For the first time, I had a bayonet fight with the Japanese, and I didn't think much of the choice between life and death for the first time. I will avenge myself, kill the aggressors, defend the country, and defend my homeland. This is my first understanding of the duties of revolutionary servicemen.

After this battle, my thoughts mature a lot, and the blood and fire of war have cast my soul.

My fingers are wounded, because there is no medicine, wound infection, arm swollen like a bowl of coarse, very pain. The health worker called the stretcher and wanted to carry me to my fellow domestic house, and I refused to follow the army. In second days, I had a high fever, and with the team, even in the final decision stretcher for me, lifting me for 11 days, so I deeply felt the warmth of the revolution, Comrade Comrade is really fellowlike, britherhood ah!

In May 20, 1945, Wang Jidong Lulong County Zhang Jizhuang and his comrades together. He was the reconnaissance officer and reconnaissance company commander of the sixteen army in Eastern Hebei (left)
