In the War of Liberation, there were four major field armies, plus the North China Field Army. There were five major field armies. Among the five field armies, Chen Yi is the only one who serves in the two field armies at the same time and is a leader at the commander-in-chief level.

He is not only the commander and political commissar of the East China Field Army, but also the first deputy commander of the Central Plains Field Army.

This is only one of the five field armies.

He was both a commander and a political commissar, and worked at the headquarters of the East China Field Army. In May 1948, in order to meet the needs of the development of the national situation, the CPC Central Committee adjusted the two strategic jurisdictions of North China and Central Plains, and decided to strengthen the leadership of the Central Plains Bureau. Chen Yi was transferred to the Central Plains War Zone, with Deng Xiaoping as the first secretary and Chen Yi as the Second Secretary of the Central Plains Bureau. At the same time, the Central Plains Military Region and the Central Plains Field Army were established, with Liu Bocheng as commander, Deng Xiaoping as the Political Committee and Chen Yi as the Central Plains. The first deputy commander of the military area and field forces. However, he is still the commander and political commissar of the East China Field Army. As the second-in-command of the Central Plains Bureau and the third-in-command of the Central Plains Field Army, Chen Yi is the true commander-in-chief of the Central Plains Field Army and directly participates in the actual leadership of the Central Plains War Zone. For this reason, he left Huaye on May 30 and joined Liu Deng on June 14.

Why should Chen Yi be transferred from Huaye to participate in the leadership of the Central Plains War Zone? Chen Yi's participation in the leadership of the Central Plains war zone has the following two purposes:

One is to strengthen the leadership of the Central Plains field army. The Central Plains Field Army has thus formed a pattern of coordinated command by Liu, Chen and Deng. From then on, the leadership and decision-making power of the Central Plains Field Army has been greatly strengthened.

Secondly, the two field armies, Zhongye and Huaye, are not subordinate to each other, thus forming a perfect pattern of coordination, coordination and cooperation between the two field armies. It is precisely for this reason that the two field armies succeeded in the Huaihai Campaign and won the battle with 600,000 troops over 800,000 horses. Then they successfully launched the battle of crossing the Yangtze River, first liberating Nanjing, then liberating Shanghai and Hangzhou, thus forming a situation of destruction, decay and wind-torn clouds in which a million male divisions crossed the Dajiang River, Xiajiang South, and Jiangjia Dynasty collapsed. Taiwan.

Therefore, Chen Yi's participation in the leadership of the Central Plains Field Army is a rare and wonderful chess played by Mao Zedong and the Party Central Committee in the War of Liberation.
