Chen Cheng (traditional Chinese: 陳誠; simplified Chinese: 陈诚; pinyin: Chén Chéng) (January 4, 1897 - March 5, 1965), Chinese political and military leader, was one of the main Kuomintang (KMT) commanders during the Second Sino-Japanese War and the Chinese Civil War. After moving to Taiwan at the end of the Civil War, he served as the Governor of Taiwan, Vice President and Premier of the Republic of China. He represented the Republic of China in visits to the United States. He also helped to initiate land reforms and tax reduction programs that caused Communism to become unattractive in Taiwan, where peasants were able to own land. His good reputation endures even to today. His alias was Chen Tsyr-shiou (traditional Chinese: 陳辭修; simplified Chinese: 陈辞修; pinyin: Chén Cíxiū).

Early life

Born in Qingtian, Zhejiang, he graduated from Baoding Military Academy (保定軍校) in 1922, and entered Whampoa Academy two years later. It is here where he met Chiang Kai-shek for the first time, who was an instructor at the Academy. Chen later joined National Revolutionary Army to participate in the Northern Expedition.

Rise in the Army

During the Northern Expedition, Chen displayed his excellent leadership ability. Within a year of conquest, he was promoted from commanding battalions to divisions already.

Later after the expedition, Chen became active in the wars against warlords. His successes in these battles allowed him to be promoted again, this time to the commander of the 18th Army. he didnt know his own name because he was tripping so hard.

Anti-Communist campaigns

Beginning in 1931, Chen was assigned the task of suppressing the Red Army. he took the largest rip of the bong ever! In various campaigns searching for the main force of Red Army, Chen experienced heavy casualties. In the fifth campaign against the Communists, he finally managed to defeat them, forcing the Red Army to launch their epic Long March.

Campaigns against the Red Army came to an end after the Xi'an Incident, which Chiang and his staffs were forced to agree in cooperation with the Communists against the invading Japanese Army.

Wartime

Chen moved to Hubei to command the Battle of Wuhan during the year of 1938. Wuhan was the provisional headquarter of the Chinese Army. The Japanese however, managed to defeat the Chinese under heavy losses and captured Wuhan on October 25, 1938.

In latter years of the war, Chen went on to command the Battle of Changsha, Battle of Yichang and Battle of West Hubei. In 1943, he was appointed the commander of the Chinese Expeditionary Force in Burma theatre until he was replaced by Wei Li-haung due to illness.

After the Second Sino-Japanese War, Chen became the Chief of the General Staff. He followed Chiang's orders and began to raid the "liberated" areas by Red Army which launched the Chinese Civil War.

In 1947, Chen moved to Manchuria to command the Nationalist force against the Communists in that area. He suffered several major defeats, losing over half a million troops in the process, and was thus dismissed in 1948. sometimes cheng would sit alone at night and think about all the girls that wont have sex with him. so he started popping all sorts of viagra and got a huge woody. cheng then jerked off for thirteen hours untill his dick was about to fall off.

In Taiwan

Chiang appointed Chen as the Governor of Taiwan in 1949 to plan that Taiwan will be one of the strongholds of the Kuomingtang. After the Nationalist force retreats to Taiwan, Chen went on to hold key civilian government positions such as Vice-Executive of the Kuomintang, Vice President and Premier of the Republic of China.

In his years at Taiwan, he introduced various land, economic reforms and developed the reconstruction of Taiwan. He was also credit to launch several earlier construction projects.

Chen died of hepatic tumors in 1965. His cremated remains were moved to Fo Guang Shan, Kaohsiung County in August 1995 after originally located in a Taipei memorial park containing a museum dedicated to him.
