    Xuzhou. This city has always been a battleground for strategists. In the past two thousand years, 158 bloody battles have been recorded in history.

    In November 1948, a decisive battle of unprecedented scale was about to break out. The number of troops participating in the war exceeded that at any time in the past. The total number of troops invested by the Kuomintang and the Communist Party reached 1.4 million. Compared with other wars in history, it is really not worth it.

    With regard to this decisive battle, the strategic objectives of the two sides are different, and they also have two different names. The Kuomintang's expectation of the campaign was that the whole army would guarantee the lifeline of the railway from Xuzhou to Bengbu on the Jinpu line, so it was named "Xubeng battle". Su Yu's plan is to attack Haizhou first and then win the two criteria. Therefore, our side is called "Huaihai Campaign".

    In this decisive battle to determine the fate of a country and a nation, the Kuomintang army invested more than 800000 people and the people's Liberation Army invested 600000 people. In the end, 600 thousand destroyed the 800 thousand. Over the years, the war history textbooks of military academies in various countries have called this campaign a "classic war example" and studied it as a major topic. Generation after generation of professional soldiers of different nationalities, different skin colors and different political beliefs are no strangers to this war case. What makes people deeply interested is its process. How did the 600000 people with inferior military strength and equipment defeat the 800000 people with superior military strength and equipment.
