You could find more information in my doc http://www.republica...Campaign-v0.pdf
Thanks Ah Xiang!
Precisely I have detailed info about the Huai Huai campaign and Manchurian campaigns, but I don`t have information of all other teathers of the War.
So, I´m asking for information about the "bing tuan" (Army Groups) and Pacifications Zones created during the war. If possible, date of creation and dissolution and regions were operated...
For the civil war time period, I haven't see a good book with the proper order of battles. I spent about two years writing on the civil war in 2004-6, but shifted to the 1925-1941 period thereafter. I kind of pieced together the units by examining numerous books. The "bing tuan" (Army Groups) was a relatively new numbering that was devised just prior to the Huai-Hai Campaign. In 1945-1946, under Marshall's disarmament plan, Chinese army was downgraded one level down, namely, corps degrading to division and division downgrading to brigade. There were around ten reorganized puppet armies that were dismissed per Marshall order. The pacification zones, such as Li Mo'an's first pacification zone, Wang Yaowu's 2nd pacification zone, Feng Zhi'an's 3rd pacification zone, and Liu Ruming's 4th pacification zone, were in effect from 1946 to early 1948. After the eruption of the large-scale battles in 1947, the disarmament plan was reversed, with the divisions upgraded to the army corps again. After the sieges of Kaifeng and Jinan, the pacification zones did not exist any more. Give me some time, I will wrap up the civil war history, possibly sometime next year.
