Editor's note:

    In 1924, Dr. Sun Yat-sen established the Whampoa Military Academy with the help of the Communist Party of China and the Soviet Union.

The teachers and students of Huangpu made great achievements in the struggle against imperialism and feudalism, and in the struggle for national unity and independence, and made significant contributions to the Chinese revolution.

On the occasion of the centenary of the founding of the Whampoa Military Academy, China News Service launched the 100-person oral history series "The Wind Rises in Whampoa" to search for 100 representative Whampoa alumni and descendants around the world, listen to the stories of the martyrs, and pursue the spirit of the ancestors, so as to better to unite the Chinese people at home and abroad to jointly contribute to the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation and the complete reunification of the motherland.

  Zang Kejia is a famous Chinese poet. From a "peasant poet" to a "poetry leader", many of his poems have been widely praised and deeply loved by readers.

But what is less known is that before becoming famous as a "poet", Zang Kejia once studied at the historically famous Whampoa Military Academy.

In the autumn of 1926, Zang Kejia, like many young people at that time, was affected by the New Culture Movement and applied for the Wuhan Branch of Whampoa Military Academy.

In his memoirs, he once described that the life in the military academy was serious and tense, and he had to practice hundreds of times to stand at attention after taking a break.

  In the military academy, Zang Kejia, as a member of the Central Independent Division, participated in the battle against Xia Douyin and experienced the first actual combat in his life.

Recently, in an interview with a reporter from China News Service, Zheng Suyi, the daughter of the Zang Ke family, said that the Zang Ke family often told their family members that although the experience of Huangpu Military Academy lasted only half a year, it affected his life.

"Although he later did not fight with a gun in the army, he always used his pen as a gun to fight for the liberation of the people and the reunification of the motherland. As long as he could pick up a pen, he would write all his life. He has been fighting all his life for the demands of ordinary people."
