In one of Chinese history's deadliest battles, thousands from the People's Liberation Army (PLA) and the Nationalist Army (KMT) fell in the battle that took place between Xuzhou and Bengdu. It was amid this bloody fight that Captain Guzidi led the Ninth Company infantry unit on a sniper mission. His orders were to fight the KMT Army until the retreat assembly call was sounded.

But now

The defensive area has expanded

l can't spare the troops

Are you following?

Say something

Damn delicious


Only girls wear down their shoes here

When will you learn to walk like a man?

Stop messing around

Tell me what you need

l'll do whatever l can

What you want?

ln that case

l don't have enough artillery

l need Maxim machineguns


Give you two machine guns

And three thousand rounds

l want to keep that mountain gun

Shells are hard to find

The quartermaster will check

You can take whatever he finds

My troops are good in the trenches

Especially with explosives

You've got to let me take all l want

Go ahead

Take as much as you can carry

l don't have enough men

Give me thirty more

No way

After all, l'm the provisional

captain of the advanced guards

How about twenty more men?

No way


That's not a lot to ask

The regiment's troops are all deployed

l can't spare a single man


There really are no men left

The Colonel's bodyguard is dead

And there is no replacement

l now serve as the Bugler and his bodyguard

lt's the truth


Then just give me one person

l need a Political Officer

You've only got half a company

What you need a Political Officer for?

ln the last battle

lf the Political Officer hadn't died

l wouldn't have made that mistake

Now you know

You can be your own Political Officer

Can we.

Keep the helmets and boots

we took from the POWs?


Okay, keep them


Get the stuff for him


What are the goodies?

Yellow Dragon cigarettes.

The Colonel won't even smoke them himself

Why is there only half a carton left?

Give the rest to him

You're always so stingy

Giving half a pack at best

What's so special this time?


How many of us are left?

l mean from the old guerilla unit?
