Gao Jing- ting,the commanding officer of the fourth detachment of the N4 A,who was executed in June 1939,did make big mistakes. But his death is the result of a gradual process. Ye Ting,commander of the N4 A,should not be primarily responsible for this case. Gao Jing- ting＇s death sentence was decided by the Central Committee of the Chinese Communist Party after the conflict became acute. In this case,Xiang Ying,who was in southern Anhui,played the role of remote control; Ye Ting,Zhang Yun- yi and Deng Zi- hui,who were in north of the Chang Jiang River,played the role of the executor; the Central Committee of the Chinese Communist Party in Yan＇an,played the role of the final decider. Chiang Kai-shek＇s approval of the death sentence was just an action of pushing the boat with the current.
