In the blazing years of the Chinese War of Resistance, many outstanding generals of the War of Resistance emerged, and with their outstanding wisdom and perseverance, they led the Chinese people to the final victory. Among them, General Zhang Weihan is an indelible hero, his life is full of struggle and dedication, and he has made outstanding contributions to the cause of national independence. This article will take you to explore the legendary experience of General Zhang Weihan in depth, and let us walk into the life story of this great general.


During the Chinese War of Resistance, it was a period full of glory and hardship, and in this era, many great generals of the War of Resistance emerged, and General Zhang Weihan was undoubtedly one of the dazzling stars. His life was full of legend, perseverance and indomitable spirit, forging his immortal position in Chinese history.

Zhang Weihan, a name may be forgotten today, but his deeds will always shine. He was born into an ordinary rural family in Tao County, Shandong Province, and his family was not wealthy, but his early thirst for knowledge drove him to leave his hometown early and go to Beijing to study. In the city, he entered the 16th Mixed Brigade Officer School hosted by Feng Yuxiang, a decision that would completely change the trajectory of his life.

At school, he made like-minded friends, including Peng Xuefeng, and this friendship would become a solid cornerstone for his future revolutionary road. However, Zhang Weihan's youth coincided with a turbulent era in China, and the Five Massacre and the White Terror inspired him and other patriotic youths to actively participate in demonstrations and propaganda, but as the situation deteriorated in the country, he had to flee the city and hide in the countryside, a decision that became his first step into the revolution.

During the period of his absence, China fell into an even greater crisis, especially after the 918 incident, when the Japanese invading army occupied northeast China, and the incompetence and corruption of the Kuomintang government were inevitably exposed. All this made Zhang Weihan feel more worried about the future of the country, so he decided to organize and mobilize students to participate in national salvation activities, and established the alumni association of Beimenguo University in Jinan, attracting many people with lofty ideals to join and jointly forming the cornerstone of the anti-Japanese force.

In 1936, Zhang Weihan met General Fan Zhuxian, and the two cooperated to establish the Northwest Lu Revolutionary Base Area and promote the cooperation between the Kuomintang and the Communist Party. He also married General Fan Zhuxian's niece, Fan Shuyu, and this marriage became a source of strength for his firm revolutionary faith. After that, through Peng Xuefeng's introduction, Zhang Weihan joined the Communist Party of China, became a member of the party, and made unremitting efforts for the party's cause.

After joining the party, Zhang Weihan showed excellent military organization and command skills. He reorganized large-scale armed forces, established an anti-Japanese armed regime, trained Communist county magistrates, and laid a solid foundation for the War of Resistance. His fame spread throughout the country, and the Party Central Committee even asked all localities to learn from the experience of the anti-Japanese regime in northwestern Lu.

In September 1937, the Japanese invading army came to Shandong, and in order to resist the enemy, Shandong Province established the Sixth District Anti-Japanese Guerrilla Command, with General Fan Zhuxian as the commander and Zhang Weihan as the director of the Political Training Department. However, due to the betrayal of the Kuomintang, the loss of General Fan Zhuxian's troops was achieved, but Zhang Weihan's decisive action saved the situation, crushed the enemy's attack, and calmed the mood of the people.

Soon after, Zhang Weihan led eight regiments and more than 10,000 soldiers to join the 129th Division. In honor of General Fan Zhuxian, he collectively referred to this unit as the 129th Division Zhuxian Column of the Eighth Route Army. This formidable army was rare in the early days of the War of Resistance, but it was also unusually strong. Zhang Weihan used this army to launch the defense of northwestern Lu, which held out for one and a half years, becoming a model of our party's guerrilla warfare on the plains and creating conditions for the establishment of a base area in the Luyu region.

In May 1940, Zhang Weihan's team worked with

Li Jukui's advance column was merged into the 129th New 8th Brigade, which he continued to lead in the anti-Japanese struggle. After the establishment of the 129th New Eighth Brigade, Zhang Weihan's battlefield was transferred to the Third Military Subdistrict of Southern Hebei and began a brand-new revolutionary journey.

In the Southern Hebei Military Subdistrict, Zhang Weihan once again showed his outstanding leadership skills. He skillfully used the complex terrain of the local area to implement a political-military double-strike strategy, repeatedly crushed the enemy's attacks, and defended the people's homeland. His troops were like a copper wall and an iron wall, impregnable. And he himself set an example for the team with firm determination and tenacious will.

As victory approached, Zhang Weihan originally planned to lead his troops south, but the party and army leadership hoped that he could stay and stabilize the situation and continue to preside over the overall situation. As a result, Zhang Weihan said goodbye to his old comrades-in-arms, established a new team in the Handan Military Region, and served as chief of staff and commander of the military region, he stood firm on the front line and defended the security of the country, no matter how much pressure he faced.

However, Zhang Weihan's tenacity did not stop there. At the end of 1943, he went to study at the Yan'an Party School, where he raised his political ideology and revolutionary consciousness. Two years later, when he was ready to return to the front, he was diagnosed with a serious illness and had to stay in bed. However, even in the midst of illness, he persisted in his work, formed armed forces, and solved the problem of insufficient funds
