Mention elite troops of the people’s liberation army (PLA), people would first think of brilliant exploits the fourth field army, the force from baishan blackwater in all the way to the end of the world, the one battle, battle, fight hard, liberated the better part of a Chinese, have sprung up out of the many exploits troops and hero, and a large number of legendary founding generals.In the fourth field Army, known as the five main forces, namely the 38th army, 39th army, 40th Army, 41st army and 43rd army, which were respectively adapted from the first, second, third, fourth and sixth longitudes of the former East Field.The 38th Army is known as the “Thousand Year Army”.The 39th Army is known throughout the army as a lion of iron and blood and an ever-victorious army.The 40th Army is known as the “Cyclone Force”.The 41st Army is famous for its meritorious troops such as the Tashan Heroes And the Tashan Garrison Heroes.43 army to “iron army troops” “attack tiger” heheweifeng, especially by Lin Reuse.The five main forces naturally also want to row a row of seats, on the top of the 38th army and 39 army are defiant against each other, all think they are the number one main force of the four wild, the first trump card.Indeed, the 38th and 39th armies are among the top in terms of their military history, combat effectiveness and historical achievements.So, 38th army and 39th army, in the end who is the first king’s army?The 38th army and the 39th Army are both heroic units that have been intact and inherited since the birth of the Red Army.38 army is a backbone to the old Red Army to develop the main force, its 334 regiment can be traced back to peng Dehuai’s leadership of the Pingjiang uprising, 338 regiment formerly known as the red 25th army 75 division 1, after the outbreak of the War of Resistance against Japanese aggression, the two old Red Army troops were respectively adapted into the eighth Route Army 115 division 343 brigade 686 regiment 1 battalion and 344 brigade 688 regiment 1 battalion.The 335th and 337th regiments were also reorganized as the eighth Route Army units based on the old Red Army. However, they were not officially organized as the National Revolutionary Army, but were given the titles of 343 Brigade, new 2nd Battalion of 685 Regiment and 343 Brigade supplementary regiment after the eighth Route Army was expanded.In the middle of the Anti-Japanese War, these troops entered Shandong in succession to develop the 4th, 6th, 13th and 23rd regiments of the Shandong Military Region.After the Anti-Japanese War, the 6th and 13th regiments and other troops formed the 1st Shandong Division, while the 4th and 23rd regiments and other troops formed the 2nd Shandong Division.Another division of the 38th Army was formerly the Binhai Detachment of shandong Military Region and the Northeast Advancing Column, which was reorganized from the new 111th Division of the former Northeast Army uprising force.After arriving in Northeast China, in August 1946, the 1st, 2nd shandong Division and the northeast advancing Column were merged into the 1st Column of the Northeast Democratic Allied Forces in Dunhua, Jilin, under the commander Wan Yi. The three units were renamed the 1st, 2nd and 3rd 1st Column respectively.In November 1948, it was renamed the 38th Army of the People’s Liberation Army, with Li Tianyou as commander (later Liang Xingchu) and Liang Biye as political commissator (later Liu Xiyuan). The three divisions under it were renamed 112th, 113th and 114th Divisions.The 39th Army was a main force developed from the Red Xv Corps.The red 15th Army corps was formed by the hubei, Henan and Anhui Red 25th Army, the Northern Shaanxi Red 26th Army and the 27th Army in September 1935.In August 1937, the Red Xv Corps was reorganized into 344 Brigade, 115th Division, eighth Route Army, with brigade commander Xu Haidong and deputy brigade commander Huang Kecheng.After 1940, the brigade was reorganized into the 2nd column of the 8th Route Army, the 4th Column, the 5th Column and the 3rd Division of the New Fourth Army.In October 1945, more than 37,000 men from the third Division of the New Fourth Army were ordered to march into northeast China, the largest and most powerful of the troops.That year in the northeast, Lin Biao heard that the new Fourth Army division 3 arrived, the situation of the northeast battlefield to have confidence.After arriving in Northeast China, the 7th brigade of the division was transferred out by the Eastern Headquarters, and the 8th, 10th and Independent brigades were reorganized as the 2nd Column of the Northeast Democratic Allied Forces in Anda and Hailun areas of Heilongjiang province in September 1946, with Liu Zhen as the commander. The brigades were successively renamed as the 4th, 5th and 6th Divisions.In November 1948, the second column was renamed the 39th Army of the People’s Liberation Army, with Liu Zhen as military commander (later Wu Xinquan) and Wu Faxian as political commissator (later Xu Binzhou). The three divisions under the second column were renamed the 115th, 116th and 117th Divisions respectively.The 38th army and the 39th Army are the top main forces of the Siye army and its predecessor, the Northeast Democratic United Army and the Northeast Field Army. They are good at fighting big and hard battles.They were used as fist troops in several famous battles in northeast China, including the three raids to the South of the Yangtze River, the summer, autumn and winter offensives in 1947 and the Liao-Shen Campaign.Xiushui River battle, 38 army hit the northeast democratic coalition in the northeast battlefield of the first annihilation battle.Four battles and four draws, the 38th Army finally tackled this tough bone.In the Tashan attack, the 38th Army, as the general reserve, played a decisive role.In the battle of Pingjin 337 regiment 3 company will be the first red flag inserted in Tianjin city, 338 regiment 8 company first captured the meeting point jintang bridge.The 38th Army fought from the songhua River in the far north to honghe Bridge on the China-Vietnam border.The 39th army liberated tongliao, an important town in Western Manchuria, and opened up a base area in Western Manchuria.In the Battle of Liaoshen, the 39th army attacked Yixian first and Jinzhou later. Liang Shiying gave his life to blow up the bunker and became a famous battle hero of the Northeast Field Army.The subsequent battle of western Liaoning, 39 army and brother troops together to encircle and annihilate Liao Yaoxiang regiment, and seize the victory straight into Shenyang.In the Battle of Tianjin, the 39th Army took the lead in breaking through the strong city defense and entering the city.Straight to the China-Vietnam border, put the red flag in zhennan pass.There are seven main divisions in the Headquarters, and two in the 38th Army, namely 112th and 113th divisions.The 39th army had one, the 116th Division.However, in terms of combat effectiveness, the 116th Division was slightly stronger than the 112th and 113th divisions, and the Headquarters of Dongye said that the 116th Division was “the most outstanding and energetic division among the 36 divisions of the 12 columns of the NORTHEAST PLA”.During the War of Liberation, the 39th Army annihilated 196,000 enemies, while the 38th army annihilated 160,000. The 39th Army had a better record.In terms of fame, the two armies are roughly equal.After the 116th division, the 5th division of dongye 2nd Vertical, entered the Korean battlefield, the 38th and 39th armies once again played together.The 39th Army in the war of resistance to the United States and Aid The Korean war performance is quite brilliant, the first battle to beat the United States ace cavalry 1st Division, the first battle abroad to win beautiful, relieved.Only after the battle of Yunshan did the Americans know that the Chinese had put their best siye troops into action.When the 39 army exulted, the 38 army but because of the mistaken belief of the Korean People’s Army about the American black regiment intelligence, was peng boss scolded a dog blood dellin head, even threatened to revoke the 38 Army again fear of war.In the second battle, the 38th Army exonerated its humiliation. The 113th Division marched at a speed of 72.5 kilometers in 14 hours and rushed 140 miles in one day and night, creating a miracle in the history of infantry in the world.112th Division stick to pine bone peak, writer Wei Wei wrote a sincere and moving “Who is the most lovely person”.The 38 army with extraordinary courage and blood, proved themselves worthy of being the trump card in the trump card, volunteer commander Peng Dehuai in the order of commendation personally add this sentence “long live the 38th Army”, from now on, “Wansui Army” famous world.The 113th division of the 38th Army successfully completed the task of interspersed three schools, surrounded and annihilated the American army in Longyuan, and became the biggest victory of the volunteers to the American army.In the Han River blockade, the 38th Army was at the back of the water, surrounded on three sides by the U.S. army, but stubbornly held the south bank for more than 20 days. The U.S. army did not even open a hole. It is not too much to call it the “Tasan blockade” on the Korean battlefield.On the Korean battlefield, the 38th Army did its best both offensively and defensively.During the war against the United States, the 38th army annihilated 66,700 enemies, the first in the army. The 38th military record proved that the “Wansui Army” was not an empty name.However, one of the shortcomings of the 38th Army is that its performance is not stable and fluctuates greatly. Especially, its performance in the battle when it enters the position after five battles is not bright enough. It failed to win the Battle of Baekma Mountain highland, so the proud South Korean army named the 9th Division that confronted the 38th Army as “White Horse Army”.It was not until the Battle of Shangganling that the brothers of the volunteers helped the 38th Army to avenge and beat the “white horse” into a “dead horse”.39 army in the war against the United States and aid Korea total annihilation of 40,000, the overall number of annihilation is not as good as 38 army, but 39 army rarely lost, but also created a few of the most, such as the first to recover Pyongyang, with 50 army the first liberation of Seoul, and these records are by the 39 army 116 division came out on top.In the third battle, the 116th Division only took 11 minutes to break through the Linjin River. Marshal Liu Bocheng scored 100 points in his lecture at the Nanjing Military Academy, which was praised as “three risks and three wonders”.Enough to prove that the 116th division is worthy of the name of our army’s first ace division, the 39th army worthy of the name of our army.The temperament of the 39th army is to show steady performance, steady as Mount Tai, planning and then moving, and rarely play out of proportion.If you send the 39th Army to any battlefield that is tight and any front that needs to be attacked and defended, everyone can rest assured.According to the author’s opinion, the overall performance of the two armies in the War of Liberation and the Korean battlefield is roughly equal. If there is no better army than the 39th army, it should be better.But this kind of ranking is actually “saliva war”, everyone has his answer in the heart, and there is no standard answer, and this row is the people’s Liberation Army’s “inside roll”, casually take the 38 army, 39 army any one to the world military martial arts arena, enough for those so-called foreign army trump card troops to drink a pot of.Both the 38th army and the 39th Army made brilliant achievements in the war years, more importantly, they produced a number of excellent commanders and formed a grand group of god of War.For example, Li Tianyou, Liang Xingchu, Cao Lihuai and Jiang Yonghui of the 38th Army and Liu Zhen, Wu Xinquan and Zhong Wei of the 39th Army.The 38th and 39th armies are the surest guarantee for peace in the Republic.Although the names of the two armies have been changed, no matter how the titles are changed, the true colors of military soul hunting remain unchanged.
