In fact, it is difficult to give a simple answer with yes or no. After all, the Eighth Route Army and the New Fourth Army had only 1.2 million regular troops at the time of the victory of the Anti-Japanese War, but by 1949, the number had increased to a full 5 million. At this moment, most of the Chinese People's Liberation Army were captured by the civil war battlefield, or served with the commander's "uprising". Composed of the so-called "liberation fighters".
73% of the CCP's field troops have bulk sms service experience in combating the United Nations forces on the Korean peninsula, so it is quite normal that 9,549 of the 22,000 prisoners of war captured by the Volunteer Army belonged to the former national army. Therefore, Chinese scholar Yang Kuisong and Taiwan scholar Shen Xingyi both believe that the main motive for the CCP to send troops to the Korean peninsula is to win the battle, not to use the United Nations army to destroy the former national army. Although the author’s experience in interviewing Mr. Yang Shuzhi, an anti-communist activist in the Korean War, it is true that many former national troops who returned to civilians were sent by the CCP to North Korea to participate in the war by coercion or deception,
so they took the opportunity of the Korean War to eliminate “reactionaries”. The statement is not entirely groundless. However, most of the former national troops who were resolutely anti-communist like Yang Shuzhi were broken up and incorporated into the regular troops of the PLA, so it could not be called an established plan to eliminate the former national army. On the contrary, there were three local troops of the National Army who were "uprising" during the civil war, namely the 50th Army, which was adapted from the 60th Army of the Yunnan Army, and the 36th Army,
