After the surrender of
Japan, the Kuomintang reactionaries play
ed peace talks tricks on one hand and
launched attacks against the liberated areas on the other. Deng Xiaoping called
on troops in the Shanxi-Hebei-Shandong-Henan Area to launch counterattacks in
order to protect fruits of the revolution. The photo shows Deng Xiaoping, who
was then the secretary of the Central Bureau of the Shanxi-Hebei-Shandong-Henan
