April 21, 1949, commander of the Jiangyin fortress, Dai Rongguang, rebelled and allowed the Communist troops to cross over the Yangtzu River. From then on the possibilities for KMT and CCP powers to border with the Yangtzu river diminished. Soon afterward the Nationalist government was forced to retreat to Taiwan.

For details you may refer to our oral history: Interviews with Mr. Ding Zhipan.
